Just a reminder: The original Raspberry Pi uses a SoC with an ARM core
that doesn't support the ARMv7 architecture (though it does have
floating-point support). Thus most ARM-based distributions will not work
on it, and you'll typically need to run Raspbian on it. Nowadays, unless
you have an older one or you buy a rpi-zero, this is not what you use.

Nowadays we have rPi2 and rPi3. They are quad-core (though generally
only the first core can handle interrupts. So when looking at top, be
sure to press '1' for per-core information). The rPi3 should be able to
run arm64, but this seems mostly theoretical (not sure if it is
supported in practice) and you get a system slightly faster and mostly
compatible with the rPi2.

For such a small system, I think that even the original rPi would do.
The rPi2 will certaily do.
