Unless you want it to take forever, A Pentium will work, but it will work slowly.
The biggest bottleneck will be his CPU, after that, then his HDD for pure production. If the Production company is not that big, then yes, a Pentium Dual core will do fine, but in the real world, time = money and the less time you spend "waiting" the better and in turn will save money. This is why companies buy dual Xeon servers, a faster CPU and more cores will save them much more money in the long run. As long as the cores are being utilized, they are saving money. Hell, most become virtual machines.

hes going from a p4 2.8ghz.

the pentium will be nothing short of rocket ship quick!

oh god, yes it will be. A p4 @ 2.8Ghz must have been painfully slow for him to work with....

I think you are confusing ripping/encoding (e.g. wav to mp3) with sequencing. Sequencing has all the samples lined up unpacked in memory already, hence the user's need for 16GB. The main load on the CPU is only for effects like pitch shift, distortion, delay, frequency filter. Those are all fairly simple to calculate and can be done in real time or precalculated without needing an advanced CPU. I had back in 2001-2003 like a Pentium 3 or 4 and could run Cubase and Reason together without any danger of stressing the system. I could do full playback of complex songs while simultaneously recording from multiple sources.
