How to install Linux instead of Windows on your Asus K53TA?

Good all the time!

There is a laptop Asus K53TA in daily use.
Installed Windows 10, which is quite tired. I want to replace it with some Linux distro, fast, stable and so visually pleasing.

Action: Surfing, Music, Movies (online and offline), sometimes work and office with photos.
Used programs: Chrome, Opera, Notepad++, Filezilla, Spotify, VLC, PotPlayer, Office, Photoshop.

A minimum terminal, a maximum of a visual). Not necessarily all at once out of the box, but to basically all actions are performed through a GUI and on the basis of aesthetic services as with Windows.
But the main thing is to just firewood all went well, worked on both cards or at least discrete. Watching movies through the browser was comfortable with 720p, with no lag. And that on Windows, some popular movie sites is interrupted, although in youtube even in 1080p everything is smooth, everywhere playback html.

The current selection in favor of Ubuntu 16.04, including because it has a huge community.
What do you recommend?

CPU: AMD A6-3400M APU, 1400 MHz (4 cores)
RAM: 8 gb (DDR3)
Dual graphics: Integrated AMD Radeon HD 6520G (512MB) + HD 6750M (1 gb)
HDD: 250 gb (5400 RPM, SATA-II)

Thank you for your attention!

PS Mac OS very much, but elementary OS is not credible :)

1. make lucidi from a few distros and work with everyone for a couple of days at least
without installing, and then select...
2. All advise - everyone can come....
3. Here (in Linux) on another - without the command line somehow not comme Il faut or something ....
(I have two different Linux partitions always started when you turn on aquac machine, well after techlive from the office straight sick, it's better in markdown to write,
anyway the final document to PDF is done and where it is sent)...

Solution
I have graphics 7660g+7670m
I couldn't get the video driver on Ubuntu 16.04
The amdgpu driver-pro won't start because the video card is considered "legacy"
The proprietary driver is not too impressed, the word "all"
Tried Ubuntu 16.04, Linux Mint 18.3
the old VGA cards
Ubuntu Is Deprecating fglrx (Catalyst) In 16.04 LTS

Ubuntu developers have deprecated the fglrx / Catalyst Linux display stack for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Users of this upcoming Ubuntu release are now encouraged to use the open-source Radeon display stack.

The tentative 16.04 release notes mention, "The fglrx driver is now deprecated in 16.04, and we recommend its open source alternatives (radeon and amdgpu). AMD put a lot of work into the drivers, and we backported kernel code from Linux 4.5 to provide a better experience. When upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04 from a previous release, both the fglrx driver and the xorg.conf will be removed, so that the system is set to use either the amdgpu driver or the radeon driver (depending on the available hardware)."

Canonical will not be supporting the fglrx/Catalyst Linux driver in their archive beginning with Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus. There's nothing stopping anyone from downloading the latest release from AMD.com and installing the driver directly or generating the Debian packages from that -- assuming upstream Linux kernel and xorg-server compatibility -- but it's not being supported by upstream Ubuntu.

For most users, the open-source Radeon graphics stack is "good enough" particularly if you just care about desktop use cases, video playback, and light gaming. However, currently the open-source Radeon Linux graphics stack only supports OpenGL 4.1 rather than OpenGL 4.5, the open-source OpenCL compute stack leaves a lot to be desired, and there are other current open-source AMD driver limitations for some users that will make switching to the open-source driver a regression in experience and performance.

The NVIDIA Linux driver will remain in place for Ubuntu 16.04. The news of Ubuntu deprecating fglrx/Catalyst isn't entirely a big surprise since around the middle of the year is when AMD is expected to roll out their new Catalyst Linux driver based on the AMDGPU kernel driver. There is, however, that support is still expected to be limited to GCN 1.2+ GPUs at least initially so it won't be of any relevance to the vast majority of AMD Linux customers at the moment unless GCN 1.0~1.1 gets tidied up soon for AMDGPU.
the sadness continues, and this is why the question of choice, suddenly there is still a good alternative :| - Augustine_Be commented on June 8th 19 at 17:25
and what you eventually settled? - Augustine_Be commented on June 8th 19 at 17:28
at the moment, on Windows 7
8 GB of RAM
128 GB SSD (system and programs) + 1TB HDD 7200 rpm (files) - paris_Mitchell96 commented on June 8th 19 at 17:31

Solution
If this is the first experience - play some of the Debian-like, for example Ubuntu (I prefer Xubuntu, because like the ease and flexibility of the interface XFCE)
If you want to study thoroughly - put ArchLinux.
If you are looking for something in between - put Manjaro (based on ArchLinux, just install and configure easier)
P. S. So I recommend not to start instead of Windows to put, and as a second OS. All recommended distributions also can be pre-tested in VirtualBox
I wish you success in mastering!

Recommend staying on 10-ke.
Linux easy system... revised file.
Although if you are not afraid of difficulties, then in principle you can use any of the popular distributions.
Just be prepared that the WTF per minute will be great. :-)
June 8th 19 at 17:28
If visually pleasing, it is Ubuntu or OpenSuse.
If the light, any with the environment XFCE or LXDE.
If the Linux does not work, I suggest not to be perverted and try Ubuntu first. Now stable and dolgoderevenskaya version 16.04.
Without the terminal you can do, but it is better to learn.. ;)

Yes, Ubuntu 16.04. Suggest the version with gnome, not unity.
All desires do not come out to perform. To work in the terminal will have.

MS Office and Photoshop in Linux no it's not and their analogues.
If you are critical, you go to Linux you will not leave.
Yes, Ubuntu 16.04. Suggest the version with gnome, not unity.

Riot glucova. Like Gnome, unity.
MS Office and Photoshop in Linux no it's not and their analogues.

There are analogues of both. It is not necessary to lead people astray.

Photoshop is usually used for removing red-eye, etc. nonsense. These needs overlap many times with the liberal Leader. - Augustine_Be commented on June 8th 19 at 17:33
, don't be ridiculous. The counterparts have trouble which original packages there is, if you use them more than 1% of their capabilities. - Augustine_Be commented on June 8th 19 at 17:36
Nonsense stop writing.

This is the first.

Secondly, I can accurately say (and much more reasonable, unlike the Blizzard, which you are) that your counterparts (i.e., photoshop and MS office) have problems, which in the original packages not if you use these analogues to formats GIMP (not even sure that photoshop understands it at all) and LibreOffice (native support, as I remember, there is also no need to put any extra module or something). - paris_Mitchell96 commented on June 8th 19 at 17:39

Linux Mint. Userfriendly all tasted me.

Replace HDD on SSD, install Windows 7, only the net distribution, not the Assembly type Vasyan_Mega_Edition.
Clean the distribution of the Seven on this gland in five minutes the installation will say "I don't understand where we are and where we loaded - give a floppy disk with the drivers!" - Augustine_Be commented on June 8th 19 at 17:37
but if Linux is going to say, a single floppy with drivers not to do ;)) - Augustine_Be commented on June 8th 19 at 17:40

Modern Office, Photoshop on Linux do not work. Stay on windows.
Linux is convenient only for development under Linux for everything else, it is not suitable.
Nonsense. - Augustine_Be commented on June 8th 19 at 17:39
Linux is not nonsense, but is only suitable for programming and for servers. - Augustine_Be commented on June 8th 19 at 17:42
Linux is not nonsense, but your answer is nonsense.

I have Debian on a desktop, laptop (and use it wife and children, i.e., dummies), home server and VPS. - paris_Mitchell96 commented on June 8th 19 at 17:45
you're a Linux fanatic, I already knew. And will prove that Linux is super even if it is not your favorite game.
I advise to put Windows for the sake of his wife and children. Very fanatic so at least others to live do not bother your fanatizma.
And he can sit in Linux as much as you want. It's your own business, but Linux from this not getting any better. As there was no photoshop and office so they are not. And games no. And a lot of things yet, but I'm too lazy to list.
Fanaticism eclipsed your mind and you yourself can't explain what's so good about Linux for the desktop also free of charge.
Don't be a bigot and put Windu. And he did not want to go back to Linux, where everything seems to have stopped at the level of the mid-90s. - Domingo.Keeling11 commented on June 8th 19 at 17:48

In the furnace of such a Council. Son used Windows on the laptop and a couple of times it has infected virusna. Treated of under Linux on the same machine. No more desire to waste time on such nonsense.

All Pets normally have learned to use Linux, except for the benefit of the son's experience of using Windows, no one was, so bad habits to acquire it was not possible, and my son was no problem.
As there was no photoshop and office so they are not. And games no. And a lot of things yet, but I'm too lazy to list.

But it's nothing that there is a Leader (for the eyes is enough 99.9% of users) and LibreOffice (same). And I don't need all of the above.

I can explain, but not to sick people. And only those who want to understand.

She's long gone. And to go back there - it's ridiculous to offer.

About 90 - a fairy tale for those who have seen Linux 20 years ago once from a neighbor. I use it actively for 18 years, so it is not necessary to carry snowstorm. - otho.Mraz23 commented on June 8th 19 at 17:51
The GIMP is shit, libre office is shit, the fonts are shit. Any equivalent adobe premiere on Linux shit. Window system on Linux is shit. The Witcher no, a lot of new games there.
And viruses on windows starting with version 7, because the antivirus is now part of the OS and even with anti lag Windows is less than Linux and will not visitsa never eats less RAM. While Linux on the desktop manages to misiti and krasici Windows application in 2018. - Domingo.Keeling11 commented on June 8th 19 at 17:54
All nonsense, from beginning to end. Every word of it. - chelsea13 commented on June 8th 19 at 17:57
, :) Be a man, put Windu for his wife and children. And buy yourself a Mac book. After Mak Buka gonna spit of Linux, and women and children, it is better to use Windows, because there is where they work or will work is likely to be wind. - aliya.Miller82 commented on June 8th 19 at 18:00
First , as I wrote earlier, I do not want to "poke", we on brudershaft did not drink. It is not clear?
Be a man, put Windu for his wife and children.

Secondly, I do not know in advance that idiotic action. They all learned to work in Linux, and very quickly (since there are no stupid old Windows habits) and can not work in Windows. And I don't want there viruses. To put antivirus and listen to complaints that he's slow. And I don't want something to periodically reinstall. Look for soft and hand it to setupati and update., and do similar idiotic things. What word is there to understand? - chelsea13 commented on June 8th 19 at 18:03
, Linux need to be reinstalled more often than Windows, because there is no normal updates. My Windows 10 is already 5-6 years itself updates and I have the latest version of the OS, which I can not say about those who put Linux 5-6 years ago.
Fanaticism prevents you to understand that Linux on the desktop is shit.
You may not agree with me, but most importantly remove Linux and put Windows 10.
Your kids and wife will thank you, and he'll be blissed out from the fact that Windows is always the freshest. Is very small and soft, not Gonopolsky type libre office and gimp. - Domingo.Keeling11 commented on June 8th 19 at 18:06

You really can not read? Learn then. A few comments above I wrote (more than once):

Linux is convenient for the tool to work. A Windows for me is a crappy tool for the job, unsafe and curve. Because I use first, and didn't enjoy the second. If that was not clear then I can not help.

It's already an obsession. Get well, buddy. - elenor.Hintz11 commented on June 8th 19 at 18:09

If a critical similarity with Windows, then definitely something in KDE. The rest will be unusual.
June 8th 19 at 17:42
It is better to stay on Windows 10, Linux all the requirements difficult to meet. If, however, a great desire to go - Linux Mint DE to taste, to Windows software like MS Office and Photoshop recently released Wine 3.0 with a bunch of improvements, but in older versions I have in him that it is normal to have not worked.
I would probably with such demands was left to Windows 10, if you need to take it easy, then went to Windows 10 LTSB.

MS office is almost completely replaced by the WPS.
try this build forum.ubuntu.ru/index.php?topic=279247.0 familiar Windows buttons are on their places. A wood and codecs are already. Can you say turnkey are all collected. I am satisfied with.
