This PC only has 2 GB ram, might not be enough to get the best out of Elementary.
Elementary uses 6-700 MB at boot so 2 GB is more than enough, in fact 2 GB is more than enough for any decent linux distro.
You know what I think the difference maybe that I'm using ssd?
Probably, laptop hdd's also have the slowest spin speeds which wont help either.
Yes most ship with 5400 rpm drives, that slows down almost everything.

This old laptop is not worth spending an extra penny on, I will try Elementary again when I can scrounge a replacement
Yep! It works fine on my laptop and desktop too but the OS does not have a setting to choose action if we close laptop's lid in Power Settings.
Checked on 0.3.2 Freya also. Such a basic thing not yet implemented due to which laptop sleeps when lid is closed. I don't want it to sleep
From what I have seen so far, Ubuntu and Zorin are way more serious than Elementary OS, sorry...
From the setup to fixing bits and pieces later on, installing apps, eOS needs a lot more effort!
They have scaled down Ubuntu efforts a little bit too far, it seems to me...
They are looking at minimalism and the OS is only at 0.3 beta.
Tried today to install Freya 0.3.2 such a pain in the....What I mean: Installing in other language than english is just a losted time; once OS is installed the user must have strong nerves because allways is blocking does not matter what (tried more installations)...
I have tried different versions of Elementary OS, it allways felt like a early alpha version. Normal things like the one you have mentioned just refused to work out of the box as someone could expect from a Ubuntu based distro.
I never had any major issue with it, but then I only use english.
I had use english...no way..Now I have Apricity Linux and YES this WORKING!!!!
I have to give that a try sometime.
