Is your old notebook 32 bit or 64 bit? That's why I ask for model.

Acer travelmate 4720

Intel core 2 duo 2ghz
Support 64 bit
Bios legacy
Ram 1 gb

1 GB RAM? I would advise you to use a lighter Linux Distro than Zorin Lite. The Zorin Lite will work, but if you want to do something else than looking at the pretty OS you need something lighter.

I would advise you download the i386 version of MX-Linux


or the 32-bit version of Devuan:

Or Antix 21 i386

Antix only uses 256 Mb RAM so is extremely light. If you had 2 Gb RAM I would advise you could run 64-bit.

I have 64-bit MX-Linux I installed on my good lady's pc from 2006 which has 2 Gb RAM and 256 Mb AGP Graphics card, with an Athlon 64 processor, single core.
