    While I can't comment on exactly what you want to do, I run a home server from the most basic Eee PC model (it has a Celeron - not even an Atom!).

    It's the Eee PC 4G (701) model as shown on:

    It runs Ubuntu Server (32 bit of course) with SAMBA, Apache and MiniDLNA (a media server) running on it.

    As the computer you have linked to has much higher specs, and your needs don't sound too high, I would say it could work.

    I am planning on getting another machine to run it as a headless server at some point. From what I gather from the research I am doing you don't need anything very powerful. In my case I am considering using one as a web server and hosting my own site from home--speed is not too important, memory, hard disk space and a good internet connection is you just have to make sure your ISP doesn't block port 80. I am still learning about this myself, but those are the basics that I've managed to gather data on.
