Actually, in my experience current debian (wheezy) is able to boot and 
run cli apps on a device with 32MB RAM (ben nanonote, ships with openwrt), 
but it will need a bit of swap to be able to run apt-get.
On an old laptop with 128MB RAM I run a full LXDE desktop, and it 
is able to run even iceweasel.

A computerish device with 64MB RAM should be able to run a modern 
headerless debian system without significant issues.
