Mint just works for me (Mint Debian Edition at the moment).  Generally it
runs okay, can be a CPU hog at times if I have loads of tabs open (say 50
to 100 or so).  On occasion my machine starts to run at a crawl and I just
reboot it :-)

That's on a 5.5 year old Core 2 Duo 2Ghz laptop with 4GB Ram and onboard
Intel graphics.
