If you want Out-of-the-Box, "just works" then Manjaro is the best of the best. Great support and detection of hardware, choice of official/closed or OSS drivers wherever possible. Handles updates automatically, but allows you to defer them as long as possible. Exceedingly friendly for Winblows users. More stable than its parent, Arch, but still offers very new software. Since it descends from Arch which has the biggest selection of software if you count the AUR, there's a lot of choice. Basically, if you have hardware issues, I recommend Manjaro above all. For such a robust distro, it's quite light weight and snappy.
I've using Mint for 10 years. If I had known about this back then, Manjaro may have changed my attitude towards Linux somewhat.
