I vote for Manjaro.

Before Manjaro I used Ubuntu for years, the user experience has been almost the same, stable. Didn't have any problem with the hardware (but that just luck). I've been using Manjaro i3 edition for more than six months and everything has been great so far.

I installed all my development tools from the main repository without any problem. Didn't even bother to learn about the package manager the first month because the graphical frontend (pamac-gtk) was so convinient and easy to use.

If you do need to do some maintenance I believe they have some helpers scripts that automate some stuff for you. I came across one of those while browsing the options of bmenu.
