This question already has an answer here:
I have an old Toshiba f10-100 Specs are:
processor: 1.70 GHz Intel® Pentium® M processor 735 hard disk: 60 GB system memory: 512 MB (although I am in the process of buying an extra 1G ram for it) graphics: nvidia GeForce Go 6600, 128MB
My laptop still runs on XP 32bit and is used mostly for working on my PhD - lots of typing, bit of browsing, lots of article reading (PDFs) and listening to music. I have a netbook for more everyday tasks. The laptop still works very well, if slowly, but needs a new operating system, I suspect I should install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS but would appreciate any advice on the matter.
