Football Manager on Netbooks
There are people on Netbooks who were able to play Football Manager 2012 just fine by using the special Netbook skin for FM 2012, even though game performance was admittedly slower especially when they tried to load more than one leagues for their save.
The thing is that Netbooks are not powerful enough to provide a smooth playing FM experience, hence why there is no official Netbook optimized skin in the first place.
So if your Netbook could play FM 2012, chances are you'll be able to play FM 2013 on it as well.
Football Manager Handheld
We expect Football Manager Handheld 2013 for PSP to be playable on both PS Vita and older PSP editions, but most likely without native support for PS Vita. If FMH13 comes out for PSP in the first place that is, because there are some rumors that it might not.
iOS and Android
The specs of FMH 2012 will probably remain the same, so Football Manager Handheld 2013 for iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch shall require iOS 3.0 or higher. So if you're running an iOS version prior to v3.0 you should apply a newer update.
Football Manager Handheld 2013 for Android is expected to require operating system version 2.2 or higher.
