You will need least 8 GB dedicated for HDP, and that's the bare minimum. Unfortunately, even for the latest HDP sandbox, you need 8 GB or it will be too slow and very demotivating for a beginner, I hope your laptop is running linux? If not your best bet is to use the Oracle VM box.
@ Geoffrey Shelton Okot.
I have Win 10 & VMware installed in my laptop with 8 GB RAM. If HDP can't be installed , I have to search for alternatives then. HDP would have been of good help. Is there no other way to install it?
If you can't upgrade your memory, here is the basic requirement for running Windows10
That will leave you with 6 GB's for the VMware and HDP you can still install but it will be damn slow. The other alternative would be AWS
With On-Demand instances, you pay for compute capacity by per hour or per second depending on which instances you run. No longer-term commitments or upfront payments are needed. You can increase or decrease your compute capacity depending on the demands of your application and only pay the specified per hourly rates for the instance you use. On-Demand instances are recommended for:
My advice would be to test HDP in a workable environment to have a good user experience, for example, the t3x.large of 16 GB for 24 hours comes to 4 dollars with such a setup you would have gained Hortonworks and AWS cloud experience.
