Hello.

Being my school tecch dubbed my IBM Thinkpad 390e "too slow",i have pulled my VAIO out of storage to run Linux(maybe she'll appreciate the fact i have 2 old laptops and keep them) and i think it has at least a GB of memory and a 120GB HDD

Also, it has a Intel Centrino Solo 1.6GHZ CPU

Do i need to upgrade it or is it gonna be a high performer for Ubuntu Linux?

Device:

Sony VAIO VGN-BX563BLaptop
