What is the best distro for a beginner with a new laptop?
I just bought a new Asus laptop, what would be the best distro to run on it? It comes with an AMD 1.5Ghz quad core processor, 8G ram, and a 500G SATA HD. Any suggestions for optimal performance and minimal battery drain? I currently run Ubuntu 12.04 on my old Dell home PC.

I recently installed Ubuntu Studio 13 on a friend's laptop (Hp) after
he had a bad worm attack and had lost complete access to his Windows7
partition. I was able to run his system using the LIVE DVD and then
access his hard drive and reinstall his BIOS after downloading WINE 1.4
