Hi all,

I just bought a laptop with an i5-10210U processor. Minimum installation requirements for the latest ubuntu call for 2.0 GHz dual core processor. Apparently, mine is a 1.60 GHz quad core processor. Do any of you foresee issues or will this be sufficient? TIA.

The 1.6 GHz is your processors minimum speed, it's able to clock way higher than this when needed.
So it is defenetly fine, I also got Ubuntu run on an I5 of the second generation, so it will run on one of the 10th like yours.

Well, I have an Acer Aspire E5-575 laptop with an Intel Core i5-6200U cpu and Intel HD Graphics 520 and about 6 Gigs of RAM (I think). Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon runs perfectly on it!

According to Intel that processor is capable of a max 4.20 GHz. I think Ubuntu will run just fine on that machine.
From the Intel page for that processor:

Yes, very definitely and absolutely!

While there are distros that target really low spec Celeron and even Pentium machines these days, for a modern *buntu an i5 of any generation will work great. I recently upgraded my desktop unit from a Core 2 Duo CPU to a 6th gen i5, perked it right up!

In fact when the next Kubuntu LTS comes out both my physical drives will be upgraded to SSDs (one is a spinner right now), and that should take of as much hardware changes as it will need for along time to come.
