Using IntelliJ in a low end loaptop

The system configurations for my system are
512 MB ram,Intel core duo processor (1.66 Ghz),Windows Xp(SP2)
I have tried using a couple of other IDEs for developing web apps ,but my system becomes very slow when I run any IDE.So,I checked for IntelliJ IDE..but the system requiremnets to use this IDE shows minimum requirement is 1 GB Ram.So,can I use it in my laptop or not?

You can probably get it to run if you reduce the -Xmx value in idea.exe.vmoptions to something like 192M. I wouldn't try to work on a large project with such a configuration, though.
