Best Distro for Asus EEE PC 1025 Netbook


Hey guys, I am brand new to this forum--and to Linux.

I have a less than beefy netbook

SPECS

1.6GHz Intel Atom N2600
1 GB DDR3 RAM
320 GB Hard Drive
Intel NM10 Chipset
Intel GMA 3600 Graphics

What distro would be best? I use it basically for browsing the web, and using Libre Office. Have tried Ubuntu 13.04 and Mint 15, and they are super laggy of course.

Any thoughts?

The GMA3600 video device in that laptop is not supported very well in Linux, you will only get a very basic functionality. Probably not what you want to hear, but actually the best OS for this device is Windows.
