Two other possible solutions could be to try CrunchBang (very undemanding  
Debian-based distro) or LXLE which is to Lubumtu LTS more or less as Mint  
is to Ubuntu. These distros gllow easy access to the main Debian and  
Ubuntu repositories respectively, so you can pick and choose from the vat  
array of appications out there.

Alternatively, you might look into the range of "Puppy" linuxes.

Have fun!
