It probably could but it would be freezing a lot and be really slow. I don't generally recommend Windows 7 on computers with less than 2 GB of RAM and less than a 2 GHz CPU. You could try a low usage Linux distro like Lubuntu. It is very lightweight and should run pretty fast on your little notebook. Tell me if you would like to do this and I'll guide you through all the steps.

I have an Acers Aspire a A110 1.6 atom with one gig of ram that came with XP, I put 7 on it awhile back it did run a little slow not a noticeable difference for XP plus everything worked fine.  I would say if you have 32 bit 7 disk go for it, if you are happy with it when done up the ram to 2 gigs.  I also have an Acer AOD255 1.6 atom it came with 7 home on it, was a dog until I put 2 gigs in to it.  Both are running just fine, in fact the AOD255 may get an SSD in place of its 250 gig spinner the A110 has the tiny 8 gig SSD just like yours.
