One other thing I like about the mini 9 related to the SSD, is the ability to have SSD's setup with different operating systems as well as a backup. I can swap the harddrive in a few minutes.
another good lightweight antivirus is 360 total security. (uses at maximum 25% ram so about 500mb)

and this is when running a full scan.

i also have removed all stock apps that are removable, which prevents many background tasks
you have to manually remove each app.

this might be something to look into:

since win10 cloud could be a lightweight alternative to windows 10 HP

dell mini 910
supertalent dual wide ssd 128GB
2GB ddr2 400mhz ram
Realtek RTL8188SU
(not the 3G version)
hdd cooler as extra cooling
