    Linux distribution for an old laptop

    Hello,
    I started in the world of linux. I want to convert an old laptop that is my given as a surfing, word processing, and why not media center on my tv. This is an HP Omnibook xe3 with a Pentium processor (I know not how) to 700mhz and 256 ram.
    What distribution do you?

    There are many choices, the Linux world can not of course be reduced to a single distribution (...), fortunately. Teste-in LiveCD mode (that is slower against) on a cd-rw for not wasting discs, it may be practical to assess all this.

    Hey!
    You can use any ubuntu's "Netbook remix version". these are specially made for netbooks and old laptops. You can also use Damn Small Linux [DSL] or many be Tiny core Linux. There are several options for you. Just research a while about all the distributions that choose the one that suits your need. All the best!
