My laptop is pretty much old.
It's MSI M670X, and here are the specs.
CPU: Mobile AMD Sempron 3500+ 1.80GHz
RAM: 2.00 GB (1.75 GB usable)
Graphic: nVidia GeForce Go6100
Even for it's time, it's lousy configuration.
Windows 7 works nicely on it, but still has some issues with it here and there, but I want to run Linux, 'cause I simply prefer it.
I'm wondering at first if someone could recommend me best distro, or tell me if there is some online service that could 'calculate' best distro for this configuration.

xamidovic, welcome to HTG.

You would find Zorin will run very well on your system;

Another vote for Zorin.
And if regular Zorin has too much lag on your machine, Zorin Lite.

Xubuntu seems to be a good choice, just be prepared to uninstall the software bloat in that distro. If you're good with Linux, try Arch. That is what will make your system killer.
