Re: Poor batterly life

Re: Linux Mint 17 Distro for Netbook?

I'm using Linux Mint 17.1 KDE on mine [see below] probably runs about the same as what you got. but 17.1 Mate would be lighter on your system.


If they have xfce it would be best.

Re: linux mint slower that xp in the same computer

- KDE is even more demanding than Windows 7 When will people stop spreading this FUD on KDE. :| The defaults are demanding, but it can be configured to be just as light as XFCE or similar.

It's all according to what your going to do with the computer, both will work, But I would suggest 32bit with 2gbs of ram. I would suggest around 4gbs for 64bit, for 64bit make a bigger ram footprint.
