Linux on a Notebook
so i recently acquired a shitty notebook to carry around when i go to college, and i installed the latest Ubuntu version on it. it seem to run well on it although very slowly. i can't seem to be able to download Flash as it doesn't find it in the plugins, even when i try to download it directly from adobe website. also i feel like the graphic card is not recognized or wtv. it's an EEE pc from Asus. (it was already laggy with windows and i can't add memory chips because it's a piece of crap.)
i use it mostly for text editing and such, although i also use it for gameboy emulation, which is abnormally laggy.
i can easily listen to music but any video will also lag.
suggestions? (beside throwing it on a wall and get a better one; i'm broke...)
