My wife's laptop is a Dell Inspiron 600m and I am wondering if it would be possible to do a clean install of Windows 7 on it? If so, would this be advisable?

Inadvisable. It will be extremely unlikely that there will be Windows 7 drivers available for hardware from 2003.

Dell support for the Inspiron 600m only shows XP drivers available (tinyurl does not work for that pc's support page at http://support.dell.com )
