What exactly are the system resources on your system?

It's easy to determine if you can please do the following:

$ sudo lshw > lshwjuan.txt
$ gedit lshwjaun.txt

Then from gedit copy & paste the contents (Ctrl-a & then Ctrl-c) into
the 'Content' box at:


Put your name in the 'Poster' box and click 'Paste!'. Then please post
the resulting URL here. Also add the output of:

$ sudo fdisk -l

when you do. Thanks.
