Dear all,

I need to process a large data file [70GB; a few millions obs] with Stata 12 MP8. Mainly to do cross-random effects,individuals and hospitals, where the outcome is length of stay [controlling for no more than a handful of covariates to begin with]. As an approximation, the outcome is treated as continuous i.e. linear mixed models.

What kind of machine spec would be needed? Any ideas, information, experience? Would operating system make any difference? I'm open to consider Windows, Linux, OS X.

Many thanks,
Gindo
