Yep. Netbooks are rubbish for audio. I was stuck with one as my only musical tool for a while during a renovation, and they just can't hack it. You might think a dual-core 1.66MHz could handle sample playback easily, but there's something about the way those machines are configured that just can't handle the constant throughput of audio.
