I own an Asus EeePC 901 running Debian, and I'm loving every moment of
it. As long as you set it up properly (covered by
http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEeePC ) it will fly like a regular desktop.
I even play games on it (albeit only Teeworlds and Armagetronad, but
it's enough online gaming to kill time between classes; nothing

I part own a NC10 with my brother and love it with debian. It looks so cool. Installing debian on it was easy just needs at least kernel version 2.6.27 because of the wifi driver. I love the keyboard on it compared to my 12" school laptop as most of the keys are a good size. I hope this helps with your decision.
