Right now they have only released it to Microsoft TechNet and MSDN subscribers. I am running the beta on a P4 2.8Ghz, 512MB RAM and Intel integrated video. It runs pretty smooth, but this is a very stripped down version. I believe that Microsoft is going to be releasing the public beta soon which will have more features enabled. Right now it looks like a pretty version of WinXP.

Here is Microsoft's page on Vista:
