OK, turns out the machine is still a bit noisy as soon as it has run a bit, and I don't know if that will work well with recording.
(My dad fixed it for me because it made a jarring rattling noise after a certain time under load, and he claimed it went away, but I'm skeptical.)
Using my Windows laptop it is, then. That laptop doesn't have enough disk space for a dual-boot system, so I probably need to re-learn my audio skills on Windows.
OK, now that I've put my UbuntuStudio machine through all of the updates, it seems that it might work... just have to get used to the noise again. Gosh, I am so pampered by my good laptop.
