Boot the Ubuntu media, select 'install' then select 'ubuntu will be the only operating system.'

By following the easy instructions (with screenshots) on the Ubuntu website:

If you have specific questions after reading the instructions, please ask. Welcome!

Important point to remember, installing an OS will delete everything you have on that laptop.

Make sure you have a backup (or two!) of any music / photos / documents that are on the laptop first.
