I have the Asus 1000HE (close enough to OP's 1000H) and I've been experimenting with (in the order as listed):
Linux Mint 9
EEEbuntu (I think that is what it was called)
Crunchbang Linux (back when it was ubuntu-based)
LMDE (Gnome version, added LXDE on top and changed between them depending on what I wanted for the moment)
Linux Mint 12 LXDE
LMDE is the one I've kept the longest time - almost a year. That one's been with me during travels, it's been with me delivering training in Sweden during a week last year, it's been functioning as my "download" computer at home and I never felt the need for anything leaner. Think the RAM usage in idle was around 120-130MB.
Now - even though I'm quite ok with LM12 LXDE I still think it's time to get back to a Debian base. This time I think I'll first try running it with Cinnamon, and if that turns out to be to "heavy" I'll go for XFCE (and maybe I'll add LXDE as an option again)
i see that Mint 12 with Unity works fine for me (because i like Unity functionality wise) but its not that fast sometimes. Although i have even been busy with a Win XP virtual machine. Which works. Not super fast but works. It uses 512 mb ram out of 2gig the 1000h has.
Now im looking back at your suggestions. I guess ill try some Xfce edition. That would be kind of lighter i guess. Also going to try the Unity on the Xfce edition. (Xfce seems more interesting to me then Lxde). Now i wonder does MLDE Xfce has also all codecs and stuff included or not?
