I also have a 901, and the second time* I installed Debian, I choose the 
laptop task. I haven't got any major problems.

You might want to tweak your system (e.g. uninstall "powersaved"), but 
otherwise works fine. In fact, if you don't install the laptop task, you'll 
be lacking things like cpufreq-utils**: your CPU will always be at the 
highest frequency, wasting battery.

battery during my first install.
** = My first install didn't include cpufreq-utils.

So: go ahead, don't worry. However, please reports any problems you might 
encounter; uninstall stuff when you see fit.
