Hi everyone. I have Installed the latest LM using Cinnamon and I'm very impressed. I also have an older core2duo laptop that has 2GB RAM and was wondering which of these 2 DEs I should install, If there is any difference at all.
It should work fine with 2 GB as well. RAM isn't the issue (though Xfce will use less RAM itself, it really depends on what programs you're using as to whether 2 GB will cause a lot of swap use or not). Cinnamon will just use a little more power (battery) than Xfce—regardless of available RAM.
I have a pair of computers (one laptop, one desktop) with Core2 Duo processors & 4GB RAM with Cinnamon and they both run it very well. I also have an old 3rd Generation 1.5GHz 1007u Celeron CPU (about as fast as a mid-level C2D) in a laptop with 2GB RAM and it also runs it well. Just for reference.
