My sister has a netbook with this configration :

LG X110-G.A7HBG weiss XP Home
Atom N270 1.60GHz, 1GB RAM, 160GB HDD,

Which Ubuntu version should I install on it? I already tried the current version 13.10 but it crashes often and i don't want to repair it again and again.

Could you recommend the version which suits the above specs best?


You have pretty week CPU there, but good enough for Xubuntu (Ubuntu with light XFCE desktop environment).

I would go with Xubuntu 14.04 because it will be stable in 17 days from now as it provides the newest software and it is LTS (long-term support) version, so you will be good with it for long time.


I personally prefer Lubuntu 13.10 for my weaker machines. It will be lightweight enough to run great on your machine but it still has many features.

Lubuntu 13.10 is the newest current version, but I would reccomend waiting a few weeks till 14.04 is released which is a Long Term Support Release
