Try it on another partition or live usb. It's bit buggy and not enough for productive use. It's only good for "elementary" users :D

The latest version seems to be really good! They have a really polished product. The only reason I am staying aways is because it is based on ubuntu!

Cannot install this on laptop, been trying for a long time (No UEFI Support)

It does have an UEFI support. Is this what is happening to you? -> Bug #1492801 “Freya UEFI install boots to grub prompt” : Bugs : elementary O.
Maybe this will help you too -> Install ElementaryOS x64 (Freya) in UEFI Mode (Dual Boot Windows 7/8/10) - YouTub.
My friends have installed it on their laptop and i am pretty sure we can.

PS: I can't reproduce the problem though, i have a Legacy system. :(

tried mint yet?
its fun

Try Manjaro! It's the best distro that i have tried till date. I have been using since last 2 months and it doesn't break or no maintenance needed.
And arch based means latest packages with less bugs(There is a 2-3 week delay in updates with Arch Linux as Manjaro have separate stable and testing repos being maintained). And always the latest version of your favourite Desktop Environment!

[MENTION=110244]Nerevarine[/MENTION] - I would be happy to try and figure out your installation problem and help you install Elementary.
But if you don't mind trying out a new distro, I would suggest Manjaro because, It is a rolling distribution, You can choose community edition with Pantheon DE(Default DE of Elementary OS) called Manjaro Pantheon, a great community and also a great place to learn a lot of new things.

[MENTION=110244]Nerevarine[/MENTION] - If you didn't already google, this is another community edition where Deepin OS's DE is used -> Manjaro Deepin – Manjaro Linux – Enjoy the simplicit

Lemme know if you need help with anything at all buddy. If you already didn't know, Manjaro uses Pacman as their package manager which is completely different from Debian and Fedora based Linux ditributions, but at the same time easy and powerful than both of the others.
Checkout the wiki -> Pacman - Manjaro Linu
