Best Distro for 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?


ps: i don't care if it's not free

You might not care if its free or not but I do care that you insist on breaking our rules by posting the same damn question 3 times already....

Read our rules you agreed to when registering and note the specific one about cross posting the same question in mutiple forums:

This thread has been reported to be closed, no need to reply.
Your original thread in Fedora has been reported to be moved appropiately since its not a Fedora specific question. That's another issue, post in the most appropiate forum in the future as well.
