No. Not really, just because it´s Pro Tools itself which wants the i7 Quad to work as it is supposed to.

You can avoid expensive SSDs and go with 7200rpm HDDs instead if you are on a budget but for a decent
and trouble free PT12 performance you want an i7 Quad processor and 16GB memory (at the least, even if
Avid say 8GB minimum...daily experience tells us to better go with 16GB...for disk cache etc.).
