OK, so i just need a little advice. I own a Fujitsu Esprimo Mobile v6535 machine with these specs:

4GB RAM Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU T4300 @ 2.10GHz × 2 Unknown graphics driver (found somewhere on the net i have an Intel GL40 chipset and Mobile intel®GMA 4500M graphics ) 500GB disk

Will it run smoothly according to these specs?

Yes you can. But I would go with Ubuntu 13.04, specially if it will be the only OS on your system. For more info about 13.04 check out the Release Notes

To download 13.04 32Bit or 64Bit.

If you have a reason for using 12.04, then you can download the 32Bit or the 64Bit

Once you download the release that you like, you can burn 12.04 to a CD or 13.04 to a DVD. Also you can create a bootable USB if you so desire.

If you decided on 13.04, then you can check out the Install Ubuntu 13.04 website.

If you decided on 12.04, then you can check out the Install Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS website.

Both of these site have all the information that you need to install, burn your media, and how to create a bootable USB.

Thanks for the answer. Why 13.04 instead of 12.04? I was thinking about 12.04 more or less because of longer support. Especially in case 13.10 isn't good. Thanks! – holden May 10 '13 at 19:29
Just because of the New features, and the Updated Packages. I personally still running 12.04, but I will be upgrading in the next couple of days. – Mitch May 10 '13 at 19:35
