I don't know about the average computer, but it probably varies quite a bit.
I'm typing this on a P3 1Ghz with 256MB of ram. Ubuntu runs moderately
slowly but easily survivable. Xubuntu runs decently. I'm a bit of a speed
freak though, so I installed the core bits from the alternate cd and built a
custom fluxbox setup from there. I'd say that this is about the lowest-end
pc you'll find normal Ubuntu installed on though.

Just my 2 cents
