I'm using an older PC which is running Win10. I've not had any work packets for some time now and I'm wondering if there is a minimum spec required to participate.

Yes, there is.
The models are only on Linux at present.

A number of people are using WSL to run the tasks from Windows machines. While tasks will run on most Intel/Amd processors less than ten years old, towards the older end of that range they will be quite slow and I wouldn't bother on a machine with less than 8GB of RAM.

This WinDoze PC is running Oracle VirtualBox, both Linux (ubuntu) and MacOS (Mojave). From running with VMs: a minimum of 16 GB physical memory (preferably 32GB) to keep WinDoze and other applications happy. Replace the Hard Drive with a SSD.
