I paid $1500 for my Sony Vaio PCG-505TS - and I am happy with it and Debian.
I think, that you may buy it for less price in your country.
It is P-300 MMX, with 64 Mb RAM and 4 Gb HDD - it is quite anought for Debial Linux, but you can upgrade RAM to 128 Mb.
PS. One more - it is superslim with only 1.25 Kg weight.
