These are the minimum requirements taken directly from the ubuntu system requirements page

  • 700 MHz processor (about Intel Celeron or better)

  • 512 MiB RAM (system memory)

  • 5 GB of hard-drive space (or USB stick, memory card or external drive but see LiveCD for an alternative approach)

  • VGA capable of 1024x768 screen resolution

  • Either a CD/DVD drive or a USB port for the installer media

  • Internet access is helpful

Your machine should definitely be able to run ubuntu.

You can also always use an ubuntu live cd to try out ubuntu and see if it suits you. =)
