I have Thinkpad R40
intel pentium 1.4 GHz
250 MB RAM
I've got it with old XP ( SP1) and installed Ubuntu 9.1
surprisingly things went well and it's working - i can surf, watch movies but there are issues with the graphics. I was told that it's due to the old chipset and low RAM.
I'm looking for a distribution that is user friendly, will allow me to surf the net, watch movies and do other simple things on this machine.
