I am using Dell Ubuntu Mini 10 version of Ubuntu.

The problem is: I tried both 12.04 and 13.04, but both are extremely slow on this laptop.So I am now running 11.04 which is near it's End Of Life and will give no further support.

So what should I do now? Is there any better option than using 11.04?

You can try Xubuntu or Lubuntu, also, 12.04 with unity-2d should run well. –  mikewhatever Sep 25 '13 at 15:42

You can try Xubuntu or Lubuntu, also, 12.04 with unity-2d should run well. Be reasonable though, it's not going to be a speed demon, no matter what you install.

If you have a Dell Mini 10 (1010) with Intel's GMA500, be sure to check out the wiki page for workarounds.
