Brien Posey reviews Exchange 12/Outlook 12.  The first thing that struck me:

I did some performance monitoring and found that memory was the bottleneck. After I added an extra 512 MB of RAM to each machine, Office 12 began to perform at an acceptable level. It still wasn't blazingly fast, but it wasn't painfully slow anymore either.

Bottom line: Unless Microsoft makes some changes before Office 12 and Vista are officially released, I don't recommend even trying to run Office 12 with less than 1 GB of RAM.
Very interesting given some of the concern expressed about what hardware footprint will be required for the Eclipse-based version of Notes "Hannover".  It appears "Hannover" will be svelte comparatively :-)
