This question already has an answer here:
I've been using Ubuntu in my notebook for some time and I recently got a used netbook and I want to use Ubuntu on it. The problem is that it has really low hardware.
Look at the specs:
Processor: Intel Atom N270 @1.6GHz
RAM: 2GB DDR2 667MHz (not sure)
Chipset: Mobile Intel 945GSE Express Chipset (DDR2 400/533/667 MHz), Mobile Intel 82801GBM Chipset
Is Ubuntu 10.04.4 the best recommended? Can I use 12.04?
Thanks in advance and kind regards.
