On my old laptop I used to use openbox or wm2 and kicker (openbox and
wm2 are in ports and kicker in kdebase in ports).  I thought it was
nice.  Otherwise, a lot of people seem to be trying xfce.  Also
windowmaker is an ol' classic that is pretty simple and easy-to-use. 
Seems has a big ol' list.  Try a few, see what you like. 
Good luck,
