I just installed it a while ago and haven't really used it to make documents but some of the things that I noticed are:
(I am comparing Office 13 to Office 2007)
1. It uses more ram, it uses about 4 times more ram.
2. It takes longer to load when you open an Office program for the first time.
3. The user interface changed a bit, the color of the interface is mostly white. I don't know if I should like it or not.
4. Most of the basic functionality haven't change at all, the only reason I think I would upgrade is if I am always on the go.

I hope they could lower the memory consumption, because tablets don't have lots of RAM.

Did MS Office 2010 sell many copies? because I dont see a lot of people using it, most people I see are still using Office 2007.

Much people have the Office 2007 because why buy again a Office for 400$ bucks 3 years later.
MS Office 2010 selled like about 100 million worldwide.
But I perfer the Good Ol' 2007.
More efficient, has the same power as the 2010 or 2013 and uses less RAM.

The strategy that Microsoft is implementing is that Office 2013 will be slow with a Pentium or Ahtlon processor so that people will NEED to upgrade to have a a FAST 2013 Office.

FRAUD! :) 
Good Luck!

I love 2013. 2007 was ok, and 2010 polished things up. 2010 was fantastic, I really didn't think it could get much better. But now that 2013 has come along, wow. Everything is much snappier, it works seamlessly with skydrive, and it runs great on all of my machines and loads almost instantaneously. I'd deploy it to our users if we didn't invest so much into 2010 already.

Where are you getting this from? It runs great on low end machines. Right now, I installed it on one of my laptops with a single core Sempron and 2gb of ram and it runs great. What does microsoft care what your computer hardware is? They're a software company. They already made their money by selling you the license.
