XP is dead, period. Don't get it.

The difference between the 2 is mostly that Starter lacks some Aero effects.
Here is a link with a more detailed list: http://www.winsupersite.com/win7/win7_skus_compare.asp
He can also use the Upgrade feature to get Home Premium for about $80 if he decides to do so (at any time).

Windows 7 Ultimate is faster than XP Home on my Dell Mini 9.
OSX Snow Leopard is faster than Windows 7 Ultimate on my Dell Mini 9, just installed OSX a few weeks ago and am impressed.
