I have an old Dell Inspiron N5010 laptop in which I would like to install a user-friendly Linux distribution in order for family members to surf the web and check their e-mail.
About a year ago, I had set up a dual-boot between Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows 7 (Windows was the default OS and was running very slow despite constant maintenance).
A few weeks earlier, I replaced Ubuntu 12.04 with Linux Mint 17 XFCE due to graphics driver issues. It worked well at first, but more recently it is constantly giving me error messages and the shutdown menu doesn’t work, so I intend to replace it with something else.
- Intel Pentium P6100 dual-core CPU @ 2.00 GHz
2GB of RAM
ATI Radeon HD 5650
320GB HDD ( 5GB Partition for Linux)
Is there a distribution that will work well with this hardware and with the available disk space?
