When I tried Unity I discovered that it ran perfectly on my HP tower, but I really didn't prefer the functionality (or at least my perception). I have since installed the cinnamon add on to Ubuntu 13.04 and found that I like it's presentation and functionality just great.
Cinnamon for Raring is available in the software center - I have no knowledge concerning availability for previous versions ... I did try in for Saucy (13.10) and it didn't work. I'm not too concerned because Saucy is development for now.
