Compatibility check

I’m new at HA. I have a rasp3b with HA with little use. Now I found an older netbook (Asus EEEPC 1201N). I wonder if it’s possible to use the notebook instead of Raspberry.

My netbook has Atom dual core, 2Gb Ram, 256Gb HDD.

I’ve installed Lubuntu. Then I thought that I would proceed to Docker, but this atom is 32bit, so I don’t know what to do.

It’s possible to run home assistant on this device ?
Which installation method should I use?

I read the get started and got confused. Should I abandon the Docker idea?
It’s better to install home assistant core?

Should I follow this guide ( ) ?


You could run in a venv, but of course you won’t get the supervisor of addons.
