Advice on Destop Manager

Hi everyone,

I need help from the experts yet again. I have tried verious distros and I must say that SUSE 8.2 is my favorite. I have it running on my desktop and one of my laptops. It runs great on the desktop with KDE 3.01, however, KDE is slow on the laptop. Can someone recommed a desktop enviorment that is not as resource intinisave as KDE? I love the look and feel of KDE and I would like to have somthing simular to it that doesen't bog by system down.
