Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Mint 12 is latest and only 32bit(works on 64bit). Mint decided to drop further development of LXDE-spins. (they also said that about Xfce-spin and only in LMDE version)
They changed their/his mind (about Xfce-spin) came back after a absence! :)

LXDE should work on your rig only hardware I see that may be trouble are 'wireless (which chip?) and touchpad features (basic use should work). The webcam will probably work 'out of box' but may need driver.

Mint 12 LXDE is supported until April 2012 and it's possible to upgrade to the Mint 13 base (but it's not Mint 13 LXDE).

Their is a Maya(Mint13) ISO of both Xfce both 32 and 64 bit. For hardware try from Live CD/DVD/USB. (I believe all that Hardware works :?: ) *ALL MINT ISO's*

If 'GAME' try LMDE :idea: If use the 'Swift Linux' distro (even lighter) as base can upgrade to current UPack5 and change in LXDE if want.
**I both did fresh 'Swift linux install and changed in/installed both Xfce and LXDE (I'm a Xfce guy tho) :D :wink:

It's unofficial but I find it almost (95%) indistinguishable from a actual Mint! :mrgreen: (other that installed Apps mostly and Resources (CPU and Mem use)
