I got the following computer over Christmas,

Asus Laptop / Intel® Pentium® Processor / 15.6" Display / 4GB Memory Model: X54H-BD3MA SKU: 4005394

I'm in the process of dual booting Ubuntu on it, but would appreciate some sort of idea on what to expect or what to look forward to. what makes Ubuntu more 'for beginners' than other distros or what proliferates that myth?

EDIT: 10 key is not working. How do i fix that?
