1) Lenovo T520 i5 LL3.8 8GB ram, fast & stable

4) eeePC 701 32bit LL3.8 1GB ram, slower & stable but small and light enough to travel with me to New Zealand when visiting family in Blenheim.

Please make note of the kernel being used. 3.13.0-24 is the kernel for Linux Lite 2.0 to 2.6. The kernel for Linux Lite 2.8 is 3.19.0-33. So either this person downgraded the kernel, or upgraded from an older version of LL. The point of my comment is that new versions of Linux Lite will work on low end computers, older computers, with a matching kernel. I don't know yet if Jerry will do it, but I was hoping he would put both those kernel's in the Linux Lite 3.0 repository for us 'old' folk.

I used the upgrade path IIRC but I did do some 'fiddling' with firmware for DVB-T devices. Your comment is a good example of why we should keep notes - something I always neglect but shouldn't.
