Hardware/Software Requirements

The system requirements for QuickBooks vary a bit depending on the version of the program you use. Here are the minimum computer requirements for using QuickBooks Pro on a standalone machine:

  • IBM-compatible 500MHz Pentium II or equivalent computer (1GHz Pentium III is recommended)

  • 128MB of RAM (256MB is recommended) for a single user; 256MB of RAM (512MB is recommended) for multiple concurrent users

  • A hard disk with 850MB of free disk space for the installation and additional space as needed for your company data

  • 2x CD-ROM

  • 256-color SVGA monitor

  • An Internet connection with at least a 56Kbps modem is required if online features, including automatic updates, will be used

  • Windows 2000/XP and Internet Explorer 6.0

Just for fun I dug back in my old manuals to compare programs. These were the system requirements back in 1992 when I started using QuickBooks:

  • IBM XT, AT, PS/1, PS/2, or other IBM-compatible PC

  • 640K of RAM

  • A hard disk with 2MB of free disk space

  • A floppy disk drive (either 5.25'' or 3.5'')

  • DOS operating system, version 2.1 or later

  • Monochrome or color monitor

  • Mouse (optional)
