You don't need to manually install Intel drivers. elementary already provides the latest Intel driver that will work correctly with the rest of the hardware stack.
The Intel driver installer from 01.org will not work with elementary OS. They do not support elementary OS and the installer no longer supports the Ubuntu 14.04 base that Freya uses.
Make sure ...
There are currently no ARM images you can download from elementary. However, we do build armhf packages in our stable and os-patches repositories. This means you could theoretically attempt installing an ARM compatible version of Ubuntu, add our repositories, and install the Pantheon desktop.
ARM images are something we're interested in provided in the ...

Recent Intel i3 or comparable dual-core 64-bit processor

There is no official 32 bit elementary ISO but you can get quite close to the official experience by doing the following:
Install Ubuntu 16.04.
Add the elementary PPAs:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/stable
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/os-patches
sudo apt-get update
Install the elementary desktop:
sudo apt-get upgrade
Please define "supports" :) I'm writing this on my new Dell Precision 5510 featuring an Intel i7-6820hq (Skylake chipset), running elementaryOS 0.3.2 (Freya). My only kernel related issue has been the lack of out-of-the-box support for the Intel Wireless chipset responsible for wifi and bluetooth, but that was solved by installing a back-ported driver after ...
Be aware that the input stack simply does not support multitouch trackpads right now. You can interpret or simulate gesture support using things like touchegg, but you won't be able to get 1:1 finger tracking or in-app gestures for things like pinch-to-zoom. This won't be possible until the move to Wayland and LibInput
In the terminal:
sudo apt install software-properties-gtk
after install -> software-properties-gtk

Tested and implemented successful here - sure someone with more Linux experience may have an even better suggestion perhaps?
Missing panels in Switchboard doesn't really have anything to do with hardware. Most likely, you've installed some third party software, possibly from a third party PPA that conflicts with Switchboard.
You'll need to reinstall the missing switchboard-plug-gcc-* packages from Terminal. For example, for sound:
sudo apt install switchboard-plug-gcc-sound
No, not usually. I have switched hard disks between different machines more than once, and that shouldn’t be a problem. The only thing to make sure beforehand might be to see whether your new hardware needs drivers that are definitely not included in the distribution you are going to use.
elementary OS Loki uses a new input stack called LibInput, so previous methods of configuring the trackpad through the command line or config files may not work.
By default, Loki should detect the right method of secondary-clicking according to your hardware. If you'd like to change it, visit System Settings > Mouse & Touchpad and choose an option under ...
Support for the previous elementary OS release quickly wanes after the next's release, though the release's base Ubuntu is supported five years from its release (see this table).
Based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Xenial Xerus
Same as Freya, but no longer supports 32-bit processors (only 64-bit)
Based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr
It seems like there are unclear copyright issues regarding the webcam firmware.
Installing the firmware loader for cameras based on Ricoh R5U87x chipsets with the following steps may solve your problem:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:r5u87x-loader/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install r5u87x
Calibrating the battery may help with this. To calibrate it you just need to fully charge it, then use it and discharge completely and charge it again til 100%.
If you still experience the same issue then is probably what cheekyngeeky pointed out.
On a 2008 MacBook Pro I would suspect a failing hard drive, or at least multiple bad blocks. The 2008 should have come with a bootable DVD. You can boot from that and run Disk Utility to check the hard drive.
An SSD is a very worthwhile upgrade, as well as additional memory. I would consider these upgrades, even if the drive tests OK.
While it probably won't result in a noticeable difference, a 32 bit install will use slightly less RAM overall as the OS addresses it differently and you don't need to load both 32 and 64 bit libraries into memory if programs require them. Use the free -m command to see if you are running out of RAM when these stutters occur.
If you have a little to spare ...
TEMPORARY SOLUTION: Actually, I just discovered that the external battery is being used first. It was a simple removal of external battery and checking what battery power is at and the putting in the external battery and check what battery power is at again. Then I deduced which battery elementary OS is using first.
I originally thought the internal battery ...
I have installed eOS in my Dell XPS 15, Core i7, in dual boot with Windows 10. eOS works very, very fine, I can see all my files of Win 10, so only in a few times I boot in Windows. The system is up in only 11 seconds, in Windows more than 2 minutes. If you want more details, ask to me. I have not had any difficult to install and have no problems. Actually, ...
You have the partition, but you can't put files on it? You need to change the owner of the partition, like this:
sudo chown YOURNAME:YOURNAME /path/to/your/partition
For example, I had done this with my partition:
sudo chown aleksandar:aleksandar /media/aleksandar/4208aaf4-cd67-486b-a91a-bfe48ecb1792
Loki (elementary OS 0.4) does not support 32-bit processors such as yours, but the previous version (Freya, 0.3) does. Still, I wouldn't expect it to run well since the processor is below system recommendations and since Freya will only be supported slightly longer. Luna (0.2) is a better fit for your hardware, but I wouldn't recommend using unsupported ...
This is possible by setting an environment variable. Run it from the terminal like this:
$ WEBKIT_DISABLE_COMPOSITING_MODE=1 epiphany
See https://trac.webkit.org/wiki/EnvironmentVariables for other environment variables that you'll probably never want to use.
If this environment variable fixes your problem, then there's a good chance it's a bug in your ...
I had to download the package for 18.04LTS (https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/bcmwl-kernel-source) and install it using:
sudo apt-get remove --purge bcmwl-kernel-source
sudo dpkg -i bcmwl-kernel-source_22.214.171.1241+bdcom-0ubuntu4_amd64.deb
It will work however you'll probably need to update the kernel and some packages since that cpu model is pretty new.
If you want to be completely sure that it works, look for a laptop that comes with Ubuntu 18.04 or lower preinstalled. Those will surely work with elementary. There are companies like System76, Purism or Dell that offer that kind of laptops.
