For your Distro i'll advice manjaro
Arch tends to, since they are full bleeding edge, crash your system at times. To the point where you can have constant kernel panics - which was my main reason for switching. Arch developers also tend to push out some big changes once in a while which is good - but can crash your system if you don't follow their instructions!
Manjaro on the otherhand is leading edge > stable or bleeding edge > /unstable/testing, so you can pick and choose how stable you want your system to be. Since stability is what I want, but don't want to sacrifice access to the AUR + like pacman + want semi-new software, Manjaro fits my use case perfectly.
