Is Ubuntu better installed in Virtual Box or as a seperate OS on my system?

I would like to know if Ubuntu would work better on Virtual Box or as a separate operating system alongside my Windows XP?

I already have Windows XP installed and was thinking of installing Ubuntu on my system, when I came across Virtual Box. I read the installation manual provided for VB, but I don’t have any insight on how Virtual Box actually works.

So I was meaning to ask that would my system take a performance hit if I ran Ubuntu on Virtual Box? Would it be better if I installed it properly as another operating system?

My system details:

IBM Thinkpad R 52
Intel Pentium M Processor 1.73 GHz
2 GB RAM
