"To run this Linux distro, you can use quite the meager hardware. For instance, the minimum requirements are a 1GHz processor and a mere 768MB of RAM! The Puppylinux team recommends at least a 1.6GHz CPU and 1GB of memory for the best experience, however."

Taken from here: https://betanews.com/2017/12/05/pupp...-75-xenialpup/
Cheers I will keep trying its very interesting and testing for a non technical messer like me
