    I am pretty sure that the SEO breakdown is as follows:

    1) .com , .edu , .gov

    2) .net

    3) .co , .info , .me

    4) 2.0 websites

    All TLD's are equal in my opinion. Its the SEO that counts.

    EDIT: But I do think that EMD's are more valuable. But the TLD doesn't matter.

    .Co is identical to .Com as seen by Google.

    I asked the question to Google when I bought my first .Co because there was no option to GEO target it, it was grayed out.

    They replied with something along the lines of "Yes it has been opened up to everyone and yes it ranks the same, the option will be there for GEO targeting soon, we are working on it..."
    Something similar to that anyway.
    Sorry, I deleted the message so can't quote it.

    I think it does take longer, but will will rank just as good. Although I have a new .info I tried and it went to #8 for 16k exact searches instantly with only 1 backlink =)...But now it's down to #18 but still, I didn't expect that at all with a .info...But with other websites I noticed my .co takes a lot longer to rank but in the long-term it doesn't matter.
