IceWM, Fluxbox or regular GNUstep should do the trick.

"IceWM, Fluxbox or regular GNUstep should do the trick."

Depending on how "old" the laptop actually is, XFCE 3 and 4, IceWM, FluxBox and WindowMaker are a good idea for a GUI system. Even fvwm is imaginable, if you want to do some "cosmetics" after installation. :-)

(NB: GNUstep != WindowMaker, GNUstep != a window manager or a desktop; == a framework / library / standard specification; WindowMaker is the official window manager for GNUstep, but it is not written using GNUstep, if I remember correctly)
