My mistake, as John said, a domain being free is not a rank factor.

Wow. This is answer is wrong. A domain being free is NOT a ranking factor. –  John Conde May 9 '11 at 13:01

I don't think there is any particular disadvantage with .co.cc as far as SEO is concerned. But you should take care of this fact that if after few years your website is a success and you want to purchase your own domain name, at that time all your SEO efforts for this .co.cc domain will go in vain and you have to rework on SEO for .com or .net domain at that time.

I think having a .co.cc subdomain will rank lower in search engines then having a .com domain name. Last July, Google actually removed 11,000,000+ .co.cc websites from their listings due to the large amount of .co.cc websites containing malware and spam. If you want to be indexed by search engines, I say just spend the $10 (or less) on a .com domain name.

I think they have low priority than other paid domain names but in the last what it matters is the keywords. If you write keyword rich content than you can have a better page rank...
