I have run Ubuntu 14.04 with Unity quite happily on a similar HP machine 
with 1 GB RAM but have subsequently upgraded to 2 GB RAM which seemed to 
give it a bit more zip, but it was not a dramatic change. You will be 
getting advice to run versions like Xubuntu but I would venture to say 
that if you are comfortable with Ubuntu I believe that it will run 

Good luck,
