Linux and Laptops

http://www.linuxforums.org – This is my first post on this forum :) I posted this on the linux.com forum but got no reply so here we go. Anyways, I currently duel-boot Ubuntu and Windows Vista on my HP G50 Laptop (Intel Pentium Core 2 Duo 2.0ghz and 4gb of ram). Are there any distros that run better than Ubuntu for laptops? If so, are they easy to install so I can duel boot (easiness ranging from partitioning a drive and installing to a graphical interface inside Windows much like Wubu). Are they good for connecting to Wi-Fi networks? Do they come with a 64-bit version (If my laptop needs it)? (HowTos)
