Go to the Distrowatch website and do some browsing. I'm sure you'll find what you want.

I recommend downloading the a live iso and creating a bootable CD, DVD, or USB flash drive from it. This will allow you to try Linux without making any modifications to your laptop's hard drive.

Mint has a very easy install routine for setting up dual boot (easy, of course, is a relative term--it's still wise to do your homework, read the docs, and back up crucial data). When I made my Win7 computer dual boot, I chose Mint for that reason. If you want to try something else later on, you can just install it over the Mint partitions.
