Ok, so I did some searching, and found two other threads about similar laptops, but no responses. My specs are.

Intel Core 2 Duo P8400
4gb DDR3
Nvidia 9800M GTS 512mb video card with HDMI output including audio
200gb HDD already partitioned in two 100gb sections
Intel P45 chipset
Conexant Audio

Please let me know which distro would be the easiest to install, and have the most compatability. Thanks in advace.
