view story

http://askubuntu.com – First of all, I am not a geek and I am totally new to Linux. I want to try 12.04.1 LTS on my Dell Inspiron 15R laptop. I want to know whether the hardware of the laptop is compatible with Ubuntu and they'll just work with Ubuntu as fine as they work with Windows 7. Following are my hardware specs as I found. Can anyone tell me, will they work fine and the machine will run smoothly?
