How do I find out which version and derivate of Ubuntu is right for my hardware in terms of minimal system requirements?

I have just installed 12.04 LTS 32bit because it was recommended but it seems slow, slightly slower than the EX family edition windows which came with the notebook and I used for 3 years.... so it makes me wonder if this is the correct version of Ubuntu for me. (or.. maybe I need to install the driver for my built in graphic card? or anything else.)


Samsung N270 notebook.

  • Intel Atom cpu N270 @ 1.6GH X 2.
  • 1GB RAM
  • I am not sure the type of graphic card I just know that it is built in of Intel.

Thank you guys for the help. Patu.

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

According to here, your build should be more than capable to handle 12.04. I run it myself on a 9 year old machine with only a single core (and considerably less memory) fine.

Definitely install your graphics driver. Type " lspci | grep 'VGA' " in at the command line ('terminal' application) to find out your graphics card. A very quick google alongside the model number will tell you which package your need to enable in order to install the relevant driver.
