228MB... on a P4? What happened to the other RAM? –  Lekensteyn Apr 4 '12 at 22:37
    
@Lekensteyn - It is using a Sis video card. From the 256MB RAM it is taking a part for the video and maybe other integrated cards. And yes this is a duplicate of that question which in turn is a duplicate of another 2 questions. –  Luis Apr 4 '12 at 22:53

If Ubuntu is slow then you probably need to change your settings. Right click somewhere on the desktop and select "Background." Next click the "Visual Setting Tab" and check "None." If you need games and applications which run on a slower machine then I would recommend dotdeb.com, those games work great on my laptop and are some of the least resource intensive I've seen.
