I have Mint 8 universal on my Dell Latitude D610 laptop right now. I love it, but it performs a little sluggishly. (Only have 497.2 Mb RAM) I just tried out Mint 8 Xfce from a usb drive and it runs great. I'm thinking of installing it, but have a question.
Is there an applet for the panel to display cpu temperature like in Gnome? I've already discovered that Dropbox will work on Xfce, which was my other concern.
Or... if I added more RAM (2 Gb?) would that negate the slow response when opening menus, launching apps, etc? Maybe I don't need to install Mint Xfce?
Advice would be appreciated.
