Node Requirements Question

I know this may be a premature question, but I came across [this](https://docs.hedera.com/guides/mainnet/mainnet-nodes/node-requirements) article and was curious if someone could help explain this to me in laymen’s terms. This is “to help Hedera Governing Council members deploy their permissioned mainnet consensus node” but in theory, let’s say 5 years out when we are able to run our own nodes, will we need the latest equipment similar to what they list or would it be different for non-council members? Also, do we know if there is a minimum number of HBAR needed to run a node? I’m thinking about planning for the future now (i.e. saving, buying, holding, etc) to reap the benefits later. This is definitely something to keep for the long haul.
