Hiyall,
I have a 2011 netbook N455 that has served me well. Even though it says that it's 64 bit, it has only ever worked satisfactorily with 32 bit OSs. The last OS on there is Mint XFCE. It's not very fast and assuredly will get slower with time.

Which Sparky DE do you recommend? Its intended use is only as an audio player. It will need a pdf reader, a text writer and v-e-r-y occasional use of a simple browser. Mainly for upgrades...and that's it!

Personally, in your particular case, I would choose LXQt or MinimalGUI (OpenBox).

As an example, I can tell you that my work netbook, (an AMD with two cores at 1.35Ghz and 4 Gb of RAM). OpenBox consumes about 240 MB just started.
And in general everything works in a really satisfactory way.









Cheers!!
