Guesses for linux on a moderately old laptop
I'm looking for an Ubuntu based operating system for my Acer aspire 5742.(intel core i3 M380 2,53Ghz 2core.. ,3Gb RAM, integrated video card)
It was shipped with win7 but these days it's gettin awfully slow. Even without installing the regular security updates.
I'm familiar with ubuntu and puppy linux.
I hope, you can give me a few ideas, if i'm searching for an easy to handle, speedy operating system.
PS.: Sorry for spelling and grammar.
