A friend of mine asked me for a favour; she uses windows 7 on her laptop with these system specs:
Video : intel HD graphics family
Procesor : intel pentium B950 CPU@2.10 GHz
RAM : 4 GB
Hard disc : 500 GB
She complains about how her laptop is overheating and running slow. So I was wondering if installing Ubuntu 14.04 LTS would solve the problem, at least reduce the overheating and boost the performance?
She asked me if I could install linux on her laptop, as I suggested that linux should run better than windows.
So, would Ubuntu 14.04 be a good choice or should I go with some more lightweight Linux, given the fact that system components are not quite well?
