IIRC you have 1 GiB RAM to play with so you probably need to consider
what GUI you want and what you expect to be able to do with it once
you've got it, e.g. X Windows System and XFCE desktop.

Since your main concern seems to be hardware support, use an Arch
derivative that boots into an X desktop off the live ISO so you can
easily test the hardware.
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch-based_distributions#Active is
a list and includes the already mentioned ArchBang.  Manjaro is another
popular option.

Cheers, Ralph.
