Cool Averatec 3200 series laptop

Hello I have an Averatec 3200 series laptop, 3280. And I was wondering what the best linux based OS could be installed on the laptop without too much difficulty. Thank you and have a great day.

I had one of those that recently died. I had good luck with Ubuntu about 3 or 4 years ago, but after an upgrade I couldn't get wireless working on any subsequent version of Ubuntu. With Fedora, I couldn't get past the installation because of video problems. I had Debian etch working in text mode, and was able to get wireless working on it with some manual configuration, but couldn't get X windows working. I'm not an expert, and all of these distributions have newer versions that I never tried, so this may not be too helpful to you. Just letting you know what my experience was.
