Windows 7 Experience:

Windows 7 includes a component called the "Windows 7 Experience" which provides an assessment of the performance of key system hardware. You can use this built-in benchmark to analyze the system's processor, memory, graphics, and primary hard drive on a scale of 1.0 to 7.9 (with 7.9 being the best).

Here we see that Windows 7 isn't all that impressed by the processor or integrated graphics, which could be why Windows 7 Starter or Basic are recommended. While I agree that the system doesn't have the muscle for 3D gaming and tasks requiring serious processing power, it does quite well for typical daily computing.

FutureMark PCMark Vantage:

FutureMark's PCMark Vantage offers a full suite of tests intended to look at the key system components, but in a more in-depth manner than the Windows 7 Experience. The screenshot below shows the system configuration for testing, as well as all of the individual scores. The results are all presented in unit-less "Marks" and higher is better for each score.

After the first two tests I get the picture that this isn't going to be your go-to machine for much more than web based tasks and desktop applications, but it is always interesting to quantify things. I also see that the OCZ Agility drive may be over-spec'ed for a system like this, as the performance is bottle necked in so many other places, that it may be a waste of money.
