Trying to decide between this, the EEE 1000, or the Mini 9.

No. It has a GMA 500 video chip. OSX does not support that, no real Mac has ever used GMA 500. It's also locked down to 1GB of ram, which is usable in OSX, but sub par. But really, that graphics problem is a hurdle I don't see anyone getting around.

Tired of wondering if your Mini9 is doing ANYTHING? - Add a HDD Activity LED
