Is Dell Latitude D830 hardware too weak for Ubuntu 12.04
I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 on my Dell D830 laptop. The laptop has 2gb RAM 1.8 ghz CPU and nvidia quadro nvs 140m. I feel that 12.04 is a bit slow and gets even slower after three or more programs is running. I have noticed that Win XP had better performance with Blender than Ubuntu 12.04. Although I was using 2.59 blender in xp and the latest version of blender in ubuntu. But can these two versions have such a big difference that the latest Blender is much more heavier.
Is it normal to have not smooth performance of 12.04 with my laptop? Will the experience improve significally if I upgrade my RAM to 4 gb or even 8 gb? What is the max RAM amount in 12.04 32bit anyway?
