I'm, sorry if I'm in the wrong section.

I have Windows 8 on my laptop (a net-book) and I want to try Ubuntu because it sounds awesome.

But I'm worried my laptop won't be able to take it.

It is a hp net-book.

1.70 Ghz
4GB of Ram
and 500GB or memory
It's a 64 bit

Could that handle both Ubuntu and Windows 8?

Thanks for any help you can provide.
