I have an old Macbook Pro 15 Inch from 2009. It has Memory 3.7 G Processor Intel® Core™ i7 CPU M 620 @ 2.67GHz × 4 Graphics NVA5 Gnome 3.28.2 OS 64 bit Disk 491 GB
I am running Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS - it struggles to start up often requiring multiple attempts to start and does not allow me to create documents or save files. I have had to reload GRUB and added in a boot-repair tool (tutorial here https://www.techradar.com/uk/how-to/computing/how-to-boot-repair-ubuntu-1315203). This enabled me to reboot normally but it still takes a long time and sometimes requires two tries.
I wonder if my old computer would run better with a different version of Ubuntu?
