    Hmm, my pc specs are these:

    • Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 @ 2.00GHz (Conroe 65nm Technology) [Normal use runs at 25-45 Degrees]

    • 4,00GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 332MHz (5-5-5-15)

    • Hewlett-Packard 0A60h Motherboard (XU1 PROCESSOR) [Normal use runs at: 50-65 Degrees]

    • Intel Q965/Q963 Express Chipset Family (HP)

    • 74GB Seagate ST380815AS ATA Device (SATA) [28-37 Degrees]

    • HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H60L ATA Device

    • High Definition Audio

      Can it run Ubuntu or not, or smooth?
    i'll have tested the try version for 1-2 hours and then restarted back into Windows 10 and checked my Temps/Degrees of my Hardware and everything was the same Temps/Degrees, when i run Windows 10.. should i try? sometimes annoying lagg on Windows 10 (while surfing on Youtube and Facebook, and on Ubuntu its really smooth)

    Your computer has more than the required minimum specifications. You should be able to run Ubuntu without issue. Unity, Gnome 3, or KDE desktops are just a little more demanding and if you run into performance issues, the Mate, Xfce or LXDE desktops may work better for you. You may want to setup your computer to dual boot with Windows while you are experimenting to find the best (for you) distribution.
