Actually it depends on if you installed a fresh copy of win7 or upgraded it. THERES A HUGE DIFFERENCE!
I tried it. I had the starter edition and upgraded to home premium and man does it crawl well not crawl but hell its slow then i had a empty drive installed vista Ultimate and also formated and installed win 7 ultimate and both versions worked perfect. It felt as fast as my dell duel core My friend has the N280 adom and hes running win 7 ultimate with every thing on and it runs faster than my win 7 starter!!!

yeah, you would almost think that MS slows down Win 7 starter on purpose to get you to upgrade and pay more for a better/faster version like Pro or Ult (lol)..
PS. my 750gb was brand new when I put it in so I formatted it myself and did fresh installs of both XP Pro and Win 7 Ult...no upgrades here
