Default Wanted a Good Fast Linux Distro

Work gave me this new Toshiba laptop with Vista on it and Vista was just so slow it drove me mad.

I ditched Vista and installed open SUSE11 and was a bit disappointed by it's speed, Vista seemed faster sometimes.

I'm new to Linux and still need to run Vista, but 'll be running it under VMWare or something similar. I've been a Windows user 3.0 but am happy to jump onto Linux for ever now.

I'm currently working on a Ubuntu Live CD as I type. It looks really good, but I'm worried about not being able to su to root. Should I be??

So, what I want to know is, what is a well supported, easy to learn and quick to use Linux distro that will run fast on my nice new Toshiba laptop??

I'm pretty impressed with Ubuntu but is there something better?

Thanks for any advice.
