After fooling around with a Dell Dimension 4550, and a Dell Optiplex 
210L, I am wondering how soon I will not be able to run a current and up 
to date Linux Distro such as Ubuntu, Mint,or Fedora on it. I could 
probably run Puppy or DSL, but I find them to be an option of last 
resort. I am currently running a Dell Inspiron 1520 Pentium Dual Core in 
it. LinuxMint 17 Cinnamon LTS. Pretty much does anything I need to do 
such as browser with many tabs open and YouTube. Plays DVD's quite well. 
I may consider more RAM or a Dual Core Duo upgrade If that's compatible 
with my chipset and BIOS ver, but not if the laptop will be antiquated 
in the near future.
