You can blame that on the fact that most likely he's running an intergrated graphics chip, which means the video has to use some of the systems memory. And on Vista he probably has aero effects turned on.
-Vista will use around 300-400 or so.
-Graphics can use usually between 100-300 depending on what you're doing.
Then once you start using programs, even internet explorer, the things going to run extremely sluggish.
Upgrade the memory to 2x1gigs and you'll be fine.
