I know the basic difference with Debian vs Ubuntu and rolling updates vs Mint single release and LTS. I use LXDE 9 in my ancient laptop and netbook and love it. I now have a new, more powerful laptop, Dell XPS 15.
Dell XPS 15:
-Core i7 2670-qm
-1GB GeForce GT525m
-8 GB DDR3
-Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030 with Bluetooth 3.0
-1TB HDD (5400 RPM)
Which distro will be the best, or be able to utilize the new tech in this laptop? BTW, I'm not a PC-gamer, thats what my PS3 is for. Most likely a dual boot...

The things that have trouble - the HDMI port won't work with neither LMDE nor Mint 13, you have to install bumblebee (from the PPA) to get graphics working properly, and BluRay won't work, but otherwise everything works.
