Starter or Home Premium on 900MHz Celeron

Hi folks

I want to install Win7 on Asus EeePC 1000HD. Specs are:
900MHz Intel Celeron-M processor
1GB RAM
Intel GMA 950

Is this enough for Win7 (especially processor), and which one do you suggest? Starter or Home premium?

Please help

See how much maximum memory the MB will hold

@gregrocker

@DocBrown
regarding to your post, it will run, but will it be enough to run skype, firefox and office?

It will probably be slow, because of CPU speed. More memory may help, that's why I said to see the max for your MB. You can use SIW | System Information for Windows by Gabriel Topala to find out what it will hold.

i know that it will be slow.
i dont think that RAM memory will be the problem because i have Win7 on both 1GB/1.4GHz DualCore and 512MB/1.6GHz singleCore machines and they work smoothly
so, only question is, how slow is this processor?
p.s. my netbook has linux os so i cant instal SIW...

It's probably about 40% slower
