I have had great experiences with Ubuntu/Kubuntu, openSUSE, Fedora and PCLinuxOS on my Acer Aspire 5670. Definitely the PCLinuxOS is the most user-friendly and laptop-friendly.

I've never used PcLinuxOS. What makes you like it so much?

I've not used this disto either. I looked on their site but I really didn't see anything that would interest me in it. Anyone else use it or have experience with it at all?

I heard that the best was Ubuntu, but I haven't had the chance of trying it just yet.

Based on my experience, I would suggest Ubuntu or Linuxmint. Linuxmint is derived from Ubuntu.

Simply Mepis, wireless works out of the box, you might have to confi the video card though.
