Since you use a mac, maybe Elementary OS would be a good starting point. It's based on Ubuntu and its design philosophy is based on Apple's. Otherwise, go Ubuntu.

I support going for a thinkpad, you can find many models at different price points used on ebay.

I tried elementary and immediately installed KDE over it because it had so many limitations.

Wish I had just installed KDE Neon from the start instead of listening to people praising Elementary. Now I have a bunch of buggy Elementary stuff that gets in the way and I'm too lazy to do a fresh install of just KDE. People are always talking up these barebones OS's that are barely functional, I don't get it.

It usually falls on use cases and personal preferences. I'm still in love with puppy linux and its 400x increase in battery life. But it's only useful for me when I'm going to write or do command life stuff on a laptop and may not have an outlet nearby.
