I would recommend reducing the size of the page file. Most netbooks have 1 gig of ram. That means windows by default will use a 1.5G page file. I think that's completely unnecessary, especially for something designed for "light computing" like a netbook. I think reducing the page file to like 512MB is a good way to save drive space in this scenario.You can do some things to save on space like disabling System Restore, turn off hibernation, reduce the size of the page file (not recommended).
