I just came across this old laptop and I wanted to try something new, so I decided to install Ubuntu 12.04 on it. I am a rookie at Ubuntu. So I noticed that the OS ain't that great in terms of smoothness, since it's laggy. Don't think that the OS is the problem, just the laptops hardware.
- 1.4 GHz Intel processor
- 512 MB of RAM
- 128 MB video card.
I was hoping that someone could tell me if my laptop is fit to use 12.04 or is it to old? Maybe I have to install some drivers or whatnot. I want to use this laptop for college. No need for gaming. Just for projects, maybe watch a movie or a YouTube video, which by the way lags like hell when in full screen (unwatchable).
I was thinking of updating my RAM to 1 GB, hope that will help Ubuntu run more smoother. What do you thing? Thanks in advance!!! 🙂
