You should go for a version with a lightweight desktop environment such as Xfce or LXDE. Maybe Mint with the Mate desktop will do. Mint has the following lightweight desktop environments:
- Xfce
- Mate
MSI GE70-2PE*Quad core Intel Core i7-4710HQ*Kingston 16 GB RAM*Intel 4th Gen. Integr. GPU/NVidia GeForce GTX860M*Qualcomm Atheros Killer E2200/Intel Wireless 3160*Sitecom X5-N600 Router (WLR-5100)

13 or 16
13 is a LTS version, it get support until april 2017
16 is a "normal" version, it gets support until july 2014
The other versions are no longer supported ( support for 14 ends next month )

Edit : changed 15 into 14

I didn't realize there are so many EEEPCs still out there! I have a 1015 with a blown MB, if someone wants the rest for parts.
