I'm looking for the best Linux distro for my laptop. I'm looking around online, and getting mixed results. What I'm going to use this laptop for primarily is web browsing, typing up documents, and maybe playing some older, non intensive games if possible. At the same time, I'm looking for the fastest, best performing distro for a laptop. I want to be able to use it for work, but also want it to be really fast. Can somebody point in the right direction? I'm new to Linux, but I'm not opposed to learning how to use it better. I'd be really thankful to anyone who can help me find the right distro. Here are my laptop specs:
Dell Latitude e6400
Intel Core 2 Duo at 2.8 Ghz
4 GB ram
Kingston v300 120 GB SSD
Intel GM45 graphics

There is no 'best'. Each is slightly different
Currently, for mainstream use, Ubuntu or LinuxMint-Cinnamon.

Games might be an issue unless there are specific Linux variants for your chosen games. If not, then they might run under WINE. But maybe not.
