Going to start off by saying I have some experience using Linux but not a lot. I've used Red Hat before it became Fedora. Tried Fedora a few times as well as Ubuntu and Mint.
I am here in search of a distro that will run smoothly on a laptop I own. I tried Mint (14) and it was very laggy on my again laptop.
Specs of Laptop (Dell Inspiron 1300)
1.7GHz Intel Centrino
8MB Intel Graphics
Just looking at some suggestions for something that will run smoothly on my aging hardware, so many possibilities my research has me going all over. Looking from responses from others that have had a similar experience that I am about to embark on.
