I have some slight glitches running Ubuntu 13.04 in my old beloved Dell Mini 10v. How can I optimize the graphics for it?
It has got 1Gb of RAM and an N270 Atom processor. Very minimal graphics too.

I run Ubuntu 13.04 on a netbook too and this is what I do to optimize the machine:
OS use SWAP memory, which is located in HDD. HDD is slower than RAM, reducing the percentage of SWAP memory in HDD will increase the speed.
Check your percentage of SWAP memory using this command:
Result will be 0 to 100. To change the swappiness type this command:
sudo nano /etc/sysctl.conf
Add or change the line with minimum value (0 to 10)
Restart your Notebook and enjoy :)
