Lubuntu is a promising lightweight flavor of Ubuntu that delivers a fresh and smooth experience even on old or ‘light’ hardware.
It still has some rough edges however (not many, this is the one I’ve discovered). Out of the box, the usual shortcut Ctrl+Alt+L doesn’t work (bug 1286686).
I recently fixed a problem on an Asus Fonepad FE170CG. This tablet (or technically, more a phablet, since you can also make phone calls with it) is sold in Italy at the bargain price of 99€ and is quite popular in circles where people need a cheap appliance that can stand as access point, and make the occasional phone call.
