Best Distro for Dell Inspiron 8500


Hey all,
I'm convincing a friend to switch to Linux from Windoze. She's running a Dell Inspiron 8500 Notebook with the nVidia GeForce4 4200 vid card. What's the best linux distro for her hardware?? Is there a good laptop distro out there?
thanks..

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
