Well if you already like Ubuntu and are familiar with that, then maybe go with that. Fedora core 6 comes out in 3 days, you could give that a try too. SuSe 10.1 I like too, setting up xgl and compiz is a breeze anymore with that distro.

Not sure but you can always give it a try. I've seen it run on an IBM thinkpad, not sure of its specs though.<br>
I've also had it running on a machine with integrated intel graphics, and it ran alright.
