    is this ok?

    apologies if this in the wrong section, i am buying a cheap computer for my dad, it will be used for movies, web and maybe some 2d gaming. i wanted to know if a 1.5 ghz processor and 512mb ram runs ubuntu well. i know about xubuntu etc but was after installing full fat gnome ubuntu for him. thanks

    i used to run ubuntu on these specs, the processor speed was ok! but it as a bit sticky with such a small amount of RAM, if you could change it to 1Gig that would make it run smoother.

    Hope you find what your looking for.
