On my old computer, I was running xubuntu 15.04 with 2 GB ram and seeing
an obvious slow-down with FireFox, Thunderbird, and LibreOffice open
along with Dropbox and Insync.

Specifically, I was hitting swap memory pretty hard and experiencing a
noticeable lag on some apps after not using them in some time.

A great panel addition to use is xfce4-systemload-plugin to monitor what
is happening to your memory situation.

My takeaway is that xubuntu now probably needs 3 GB of ram.

Good luck,
