Another opinion. I use Debian elsewhere, but found installing it on a 
new laptop a bit fiddly and time consuming. As well as having to build a 
custom kernel, it also needed tweaks for wireless, bluetooth, modem, 
touchpad and the screen screen. I recently tried Ubuntu - to which I 
added kde-core and my favourite packages - and everything worked out of 
the box - even the Nvidia package worked. And it installed more quickly 
than the pre-configured version of XP that came with the machine :-)
