Mint 14 went end of life in May, so you won't get any updates for it anymore and the repositories have been moved. It is highly recommended to use a supported version.

Hi,

Kali is not a general purpose distro. I suggest you stick with Mint, just install the current version.

Linux Mint 17 is the current release. Linux Mint 13 will also be supported until April, 2017. Check the hardware compatibility at their site to compare to your hardware. You also have options of different desktop environments so you might check that to see what would be more suitable for you.
