Based on what you have described of your laptop, I couldn't tell you, and I would be wary of anyone with enough confidence to tell you.

Example: "Please tell me what petrol to put in my car, it has bridgestone tires with 1.4mm tread"....

What he is saying, (in a rather geeky way), is that laptops are difficult in a Linux environment and, therefore, to be able to give you some help the knowledgable people on this forum need to know what make and model of laptop you have, ex. Acer TravelMate 6292 i.e. as much information as possible.

actually, they are both the same, except that the universal does not have the media codecs installed by default, due to some legal issues in some countries. I always recommend the main edition, as it is, well, the main edition.
