Overwhelmed Noob

I'm tired of Windows and OS X. Want to try Linux. All I really want to do on a computer is:

1. Connect to the Internet wirelessly.
2. Surf the web.
3. Download and open pdfs.
4. Use LibreOffice as my word processor.
5. Send and receive email.
6. Use three monitors.
7. Do this fast fast fast.

Any suggestions on which distribution? On hardware requirements? Anything else I should know?

TIA
