I've got an IBM T40 laptop running an intel celeron M cpu at 1.2 GHz and 1024 MB RAM. I'm currently running Ubuntu 11.10 on it but it's so slow.
I'm looking for another dist to run on it, I'm not entirely new to Linux but I'm not an average user either.
The laptop is used mainly for school work, writing reports, browsing the internet and the occasional YouTube video.
Does anyone have a dist, preferably lighter than Ubuntu 11.10, you'd recommend?
