I am running 12.10 with AMD sempron 2800+ (1.6GHz) & 875MB RAM. 
Everything is perfect but I have noticed the odd crash with 
Chromium-browser-- "It's dead Jim" ? I just put it down to 'one of those 
things', although I rarely have more than 2 tabs open.
I'm hoping "that browser" will be Xombrero as I am also using XXXTERM 
which is an earlier version & I just appreciate the simplicity & control.
