The specifications depends on the amount of data ingested per day. The numbers referenced in the question are for an indexer that can ingest up to 300GB/day while supporting a search load.

The Splunk free license lets you index up to 500MB per day, so the hardware requirements are much less.

CPU, RAM, and disk is based on data ingest and search rather than license type. At 500MB per day, you can run Splunk on a laptop computer or similar.
