    If you see "Unity" on this forum, it's always canonical's Unity (because that what you show doesn't work on Ubuntu).

    It needs compositing, so a good graphical driver. Apart from that, it's not so heavy and you'll see if it works or not .

    But if you don't have compositing, you can always install Unity2D.

    Yes, internet is essential. Wired network almost always works (never saw someone complaining that it didn't work), but wireless can cause problems with some hardware vendors (I've seen a lot of problems with broadcom cards), but I never had problems with Ubuntu and wireless drivers.

    Normally, you should be able to configure the internet in your system settings, but if there is no wireless shown, you need to (again) google your cardname and see if you get any results. To get the name of your card, use the command

    Code:
    lspci
    This will list all computer cards, search your network card in it.

    Yeah, I did all that and it should be fine, but we have a Windows-server based static IP modem thingy that I guess requires some kind of special password, I'll have to ask our IT guy about it.

    EDIT: Hang on, switching my internet cable over to the Ubuntu laptop...

    Awesome, I'm online using my cable, but I'd better get off, my Dad hates it when I switch the cables around >
