My cousin's computer crashed on him and I was looking around and found a Dell Latitude c600/c500 hanging around. Specs are here: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latc600/en/ug/specs.htm
If I up the RAM a bit and put on a ligh distro of Ubuntu or Fedora, would that be enough to hold him over for a while?
He said he really only uses his computer for surfing the web.
Thanks in advance for your help
