Submission Best tablet for running a real GNU/Linux distribut 2

I just want a tablet that can run as mythtv-client, OpenOffice.org and not a app-market but just good old apt-get. I have a Joggler — which costs £60, I like something like this with batteries for ~£150, with screen size 10.1", at least 802.11g, usb, minimal on board storage, large RAM, battery life less important. So what is the best tablet for running a real GNU/Linux distribution, ideally Debian. Bonus points for the best apt-get-able distribution that works with a tablet.
