Personally from my experience I've had better luck running Puppy Linux on my 9 yr old hp laptop, compared to ubuntu. Puppy Linux is a very basic OS, therefore it's easy on the resources too.

My recommendation would be to use Arch Linux. Arch is hard to get installed (in the past), but there's an easier way. Arch-Anywhere automates Arch's install. However, its not as pretty as Ubuntu, but its a lot better than building from scratch.

It is nigh impossible to definitively answer your question without knowing what, exactly, you're hoping to do with the laptop once you have the new OS installed.

For example, I'm a software developer. For that purpose, I love Ubuntu because of the user community. No matter how obscure a tool I choose to help me develop code ... somebody, somewhere has had experience with it, and I can tap into that experience with a quick search of the web.

But as a desktop OS to play games, I'd probably go with something a bit more Windows-friendly, like Zorin. And if I were setting up a server ... it would be neither of those, etc. Any Linux distro is going to be much lighter on your system than Windows 7 ... so in effect, you've already solved the resource dilemma just by switching to Linux in the first place.

But just as some programs are better suited to a particular task than others, some versions of Linux lend themselves more easily to certain activities than others. From a "general use" perspective, however ... you've done exactly the right thing. By "playing around with different flavors" you've gotten a first-hand account of what might work -- for you. The ease at which you can do this is one of the best features of Linux, and will provide far more insight than any account of someone else's experiences.

Good luck to you on your new journey!
