I have a friend with a Compaq Presario 2200 Laptop:

Celeron M 1.4 GHz
1gb Ram
Intel Extreme Graphics (?)

At any rate, he's running Ubuntu 11.04 right now but he would like to free up some resources for 720p video.

What do you all think would work better, Xubuntu or Lubuntu?

Hi drawkcab,

It's worth downloading both iso files and try live before deciding. Lubuntu has the smallest foot-print, but maybe Xubuntu is fast enough, and more user friendly.

Have fun finding out :-)

Lubuntu or Lubuntu, no other choice :D

If you need anything to know about Lubuntu, have a look at my signature - Lubuntu One Stop Thread.
