It highly depends on Desktop environment you are going to use and of course the amount of ram you have installed in your laptop. I suspect that GNOME and KDE won't run on this laptop without tweaking them (removing features), so I recommend one of Fedora spins - like LXDE or XFCE.

It depends on wich version of Fedora you want.

Fedora 18 minimum requirements are:

1GB RAM 10GB disc space

So if your computer has 128 MG Ram, i would recommend:

Fedora 15

Or try installing Fedora 18 and then install Openbox, or Fluxbox.

You can even try Fedora with LXDE but it's expected to be slow.
