<<...just looking for general input trying to make it better than new>>
There are only two things that come to mind for purchasers of OEM (Dell, Lenovo, etc.) systems:
a. If you have a legitimate, licensed version of Windows lying around unused...do a clean install and rid yourself of the additional junk which OEMs install.
b. Install the maximum amount of RAM which the system will accommodate.

The documentation for the system...should be available at the website of the manufactureer. This documentation should include current components installed, as well as maximum RAM supported. If the RAM max is not easily found, just go to www.crucial.com , input the system data and the website will display replacement memory data, to include max RAM supported.
Games are hardly what I consider "bloat" since they take up minimal space and system resources...but you can remove such per http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307768 .
Other features which I would disable/remove...would be Indexing, MSN Explorer, and Windows Messenger. These are available at Add/Remove Programs/Windows Components.
