Specs of my laptop
Intel Core Duo T2400 / 5 Mb Cache / 1.83 GHz / 667 MHZ FSB
120 Gb 5400 rpm Sata Hard Drive
1 Gb DDR2 SDRAM / 553 MHZ
ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 256 Mb
Windows Vista

I use my main rig for everything from gaming to checking email. But when I play games or use my PS3 I use my laptop to check out sites in between rounds and such.

Vista has been running like shit lately on it and I really dont want to install vista again on it.

I did a dual boot before with Ubuntu but I couldnt get the wireless to work. I really know next to nothing when it comes to Linux.

I really just want something lean and fast to check email and other sites.

If Ubuntu didn't pick up the wireless, no other Distro will either without a bit of tweaking here and there.
You just need to do a bit of research on what kind of wireless card your laptop has.
