    You can pick any modern Linux distribution you like and your laptop hardware should work fine with them.

    If you find them too slow you can take a look on Mint, Kubuntu or LinuxLiteOS.

    And it's mostly depending from how you intend to use your laptop :)

    If you just need to browse few websites that's one thing. If you need to run multiple VM with heavy CPU resource usage that's another. But looking at your request I think that you need just a regular home user stuff - browsing, video and music, nothing more.

    So I can repeat that you can find almost any modern Linux distribution fits good enough for you.
