I've been running SuSE 9.1 personal on my laptop (Dell 1.6Ghz w/ 512ram & 40Gig HD) and I couldn't be happier. Only problem is if you download the distro, your gonna have to spend some time on the ftp looking for the rpm packages you want, as it is fairly bare.
Instead of Wine, I'd HIGHLY suggest CrossOver Office. It cost a little but its worth its weight in gold if you have to use apps such as Photoshop 7.0 and M$ Office.
One of these days I'm gonna get gutsy and give slack a try on my laptop, but not today.
Just my $0.02
