Hi I'm James and I'm relatively new to Linux. I've checked out a few distros and installed a few. I have a laptop I'm gonna put a Ubuntu distro on because it is kind of old so Windows 10 is a bit too beefy for at this point. Here are its specs:
System: Host: james-Lenovo-ideapad-320-15IAP Kernel: 5.13.0-39-generic x86_64 bits: 64 Desktop: Xfce 4.14.2 Distro: Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS (Focal Fossa) Machine: Type: Laptop System: LENOVO product: 80XR v: Lenovo ideapad 320-15IAP serial: <superuser/root required> Mobo: LENOVO model: LNVNB161216 v: SDK0J40700 WIN serial: <superuser/root required> UEFI: LENOVO v: 5RCN36WW date: 08/06/2018 Battery: ID-1: BAT0 charge: 16.8 Wh condition: 29.1/30.6 Wh (95%) CPU: Quad Core: Intel Pentium N4200 type: MCP speed: 895 MHz min/max: 800/2500 MHz Graphics: Device-1: Intel Celeron N3350/Pentium N4200/Atom E3900 Series Integrated Graphics driver: i915 v: kernel Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.13 driver: modesetting unloaded: fbdev,vesa resolution: 1366x768~60Hz OpenGL: renderer: Mesa Intel HD Graphics 505 (APL 3) v: 4.6 Mesa 21.2.6 Network: Device-1: Realtek RTL810xE PCI Express Fast Ethernet driver: r8169 Device-2: Realtek RTL8821AE 802.11ac PCIe Wireless Network Adapter driver: rtl8821ae Drives: Local Storage: total: 931.51 GiB used: 10.53 GiB (1.1%) Info: Processes: 210 Uptime: 4h 10m Memory: 3.66 GiB used: 1.62 GiB (44.3%) Shell: bash inxi: 3.0.38
I'm gonna replace the HDD with a PNY CS900 SSD and was wondering if I should use Zorin or Zorin lite. I'm looking for it to be responsive, stable, and get relatively good performance and battery life. This is my school laptop so it is mostly just for internet searching and notetaking via Google Docs. I would like to use Zorin but if my computer's spec aren't good enough I want to go to Zorin Lite.
I'm new to Linux/Ubuntu so I would like some insight.
