re: hardware and software support

hardware support comes from the kernel so it will be the same no matter what distro you choose and is usually quite good.

As for software any distro you choose with a well-developed package repository (Ubuntu, Fedora, etc.) will have a lot of software that you can just easily install, beyond that software compatibility for all Linux distros is the same (there are some gotchas but none that you'll come across).

The "ease of use" you're asking for mostly comes from your choice of desktop environment. For that you're probably going to be looking at either GNOME or Plasma
