I think most really don't know the HP that's needed to effectively run
JACK/Ardour. Not to mention the reportedly *terrible* soundcards in
these things.

What is the expectation of performance when using one of these netbooks
for recording and what kind of session do you want to do? Multi-track?
What screensize do you have?

You *might* be able to run Audacity ok on -generic but generally, these
machines are not suited well for demanding tasks. I'm not at all saying
that it's not possiable to get running. I'm saying that you will very
quickly run out of power to run an effective session.
