Please Note: While these are the Minimum System Requirements as defined by Microsoft, we have found the system resource use of Office 2013 applications to be considerably higher than Office 2010. As a result, we cannot recommend upgrading to Outlook 2013 for users with more moderate computer performance specifications. We will be unable to provide support for any instability or poor performance that is caused by Microsoft's Office applications.
