I have a laptop with an Intel Celeron 1.6GHz processor and 512MB of RAM - a similar spec to current netbooks.

Will I be able to install Ubuntu Netbook Remix on this laptop or will it only work with Intel Atom processors?

Minimum hardware requirements:

  • Processor: Intel® Atom™ processor
  • RAM: 512 MB
  • Storage: 4 GB Flash disk (SSD) or hard disk

It uses the standard 32 bit x86 kernel, and therefore will work on any intel based system, including your celeron.

@gorilla - Now installed! 10.4 netbook remix works great. I asked the Q because I could never get 9.10 netbook remix working and having looked at the requirements today. – Shevek Apr 29 '10 at 21:30
Strange that it should call out the Atom specifically like that, if it doesn't care. – T.J. Crowder May 24 '10 at 17:57
