I own a Lenovo Ideapad S10-2 which runs slow on Windows XP. Tried to install Linux some three years ago, but there were issues with the WiFi driver. Would you recommend installing Elementary OS on this platform? RAM has been upgraded to the max. BR Patrick


I'm not so familiar with the computer you have but as long as Windows XP runs slow probably it is not a good idea. What I recommend you is to make a live usb and try it, probably with some older version of the OS (http://osarchive.sda1.eu/elementary-os) because if I am not wrong, your computer is 32bit (i386) but all later versions of the elementary os are 64bit (amd64) and they will not run on your hardware.
