acer 522 installation
I consider myself as a newbie even if I run Linux on a few other machines.
My acer 522 BZ-499 was showing bad sectors so I decided to replace the HDD. Did it then Loaded Ubuntu 13, it was a bit sluggish so I moved down to 12.04.3 LTS for it was written that it was ok for machine with less than 2 g RAM , I still find it sluggish, 30 seconds to boot to the UBUNTU logo and another 30 seconds to boot to the desktop.
Is that normal or should I expect better with 12.04 ?
I would appreciate a suggestion as to what could be the best distro for that Acer. Thank you very much - Have a good day
