For low resource machines the only old-school trims that maintain are to edit Visual Effects of animation, sliding, fading and dragging intact.

Upgrading hardware is the way to go. Max out your RAM, then if you want better performance upgrade your processor and/or mobo. Or buy any new computer for only slighter extra cost. The weekly Sunday ad $350 special is more than needed for most users once you Clean up factory bloatware.
Gamers should look at the blazingly fast new core I5's or I7's.
Win 7 can be trimmed down!

May I ask what trims have worked for you, and for what reason?

As it says in this old thread, we tried all of these here years ago and found absolutely no performance benefit since Win7 remains as light with service trims as without - although trimming for size on some netbooks was useful.
