    On that specification notebook you may do better with Xubuntu or even Lubuntu, both of which run a lighter, less resource hungry desktop environment.

    Try Ubuntu 12.04 to see what yu think, but I suspect it may run a bit slower than you want; unity needs quite a lot of resources in my experience, however, you may find it is just as you want it.

    Hi ,
    you can always test it before installing.

    Grab the iso from here --> http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/12.04/release/

    burn it to a Usb or CD and boot from.

    Click "Try Ubuntu" and test if Ubuntu runs smoothly with your hardware.

    Check ,
    1)internal webcam
    from terminal(ctrl+alt+t) do
    Code:
    gstreamer-properties
    and click "Video" > "Test" on Default Input.

    2) Check wireless (is it work ?)

    3) Check Graphics . Is your card recognized ?

    4) Install flash player and try to see a video on youtube.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin
    5) Close the lid and try to resume from suspend. Is it resume properly ?

    In brief : Take your own Ubuntu tour before decide to install it. If meet your needs ,then install it.

    I think this is the better way to check-test Ubuntu . If works properly on "Try" it will work properly when installed.
    Thanks
