Best linux for me? Please help

Hello. I'm thinking about installing Linux on my computer and dual booting it with windows 7.

I have a laptop, MSI FX603, specs:

M480 i5 2.67 GHz

2 graphics processors Integrated Intel and a NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M

4gigs ram

500gb

Which distributor of Linux would you recommend? I would like something reliable and friendly to someone who would like to start learning how to write in Linux and other script (I've only had experience with Macromedia flash and html previously) .
