Best Linux distro for ASUS EeePC 701SD

Hi there, new to LQ, have an ASUS EeePC 701SD, 900MHz, 1G Ram, 8G SSD. It came loaded with Linux but I loaded XP since I was not ready to learn a new OS. I am now considering going back to Linux and would like to know if a Linux distro will take up less of my precious 8G disk space and will I see a performance improvement over XP?
I currently use the EeePC mainly for Web browsing, email, downloading music and video (.avi) files.
I have many other questions regarding software availability and compatibility but will limit my first post.
