Hi All, so,after Keith's posts about moving to Peppermint 3 with an older laptop, I have the following question:-
First, a little background info....
I have an HP G70. 3 Gb memory, 120Gb HDD, Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU T5800 @ 2.00GHz × 2, currently running Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit with Linux 3.2.0-51-generic & GNOME 3.4.2 (!)
For a little while, it has been running slowly (after an update?), and also frequently fails to resume, in that it "freezes". During "testing" (!), this appears to be related to high processor load at resume, and the machine will eventually return to the land of the living, if left for several minutes. Quicker to hard boot!
So, my question.. would peppermint solve the problems, given the age of the machine, and the cut down nature of peppermint?
Software wise, I would need
the following to work:-
1) Libre office and calc
5) a web browser
Desktop wise, I am most familiar with gnome, and would like to stick with it.
what say ye?
