What can I uninstall?

I ordered a new XPS 16 laptop.  I was a little disappointed that I couldn't order a bare-bones Win7 laptop, but have to receive it preloaded with stuff I don't want.  For instance, I'm getting MS Works (I'll load Office 2007 instead) and McAfee (I'll load MS Essentials instead).

What else comes preloaded on a new Dell laptop that is safe to uninstall?
