I have a 2008 HP 2133 Mininote PC, which is a small laptop machine. It has a 32-bit VIA C7-M Processor running at 1200 MHz. The memory is 2 GB and the single hard disk is 120 GB.

I originally purchased it with a vendor-installed SUSE distribution. I later installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. The machine is now at 14.04.5 LTS. I generally do weekly software updates as provided by Ubuntu.
