Hello,
What are the hardware requirements for the newest Zorin 15 Education edition ?
( to run smoothly, not too slow)
Will a 2.1ghz dual core cpu with 4gb of ram, 60gb solid-state hard drive suffice,
In older laptops such as the Dell D520 and D531's ?
The D531's in particular have the option of assigning up to 256mb of ram for graphic use.
The repair/replacement parts seem to be plentiful and inexpensive.

Thanks for your comments and advice.

I think you will be struggling with 256 Mb Graphics - I would give 12.4 Education a spin and see how you get on with that - even then you might be struggling in respect of graphics. :(

Hi everybody, I'm a new ZorinOS user and I just registered to the forums.
Just a quick question: right now I'm using Zorin Education 15, is it worth it to try Core 15 too? Or is it just exactly the same OS, only with Edu Apps preinstalled?
Thanks anybody who'll reply!

Alessio

This is interesting because I had the exact opposite experience. Kernel 5.3 was problematic, rolled back to 4.15.0-70 and now is perfect.
