I had an IBM Thinkpad (PIII 700 MHz, 640 MB ram) and it was totally
stable with Albeton Live (Moebius wasn't available back then). I
still use the same audio interfaces, an Echo Indigo i/o and a RME
Multiface - both pci/PCMCIA based and recommendable. I use them on
both Mac and PC machines. Today I'm running Moebius on a 2 GHz
Centrino with GB ram (planning to upgrade it to 2 when I get rich)
and that machine is also completely stable.

I would say they are fully stable. If the laptop crashes it's due to
factors as computer hardware (bad ram, to little ram), lousy drivers,
fragmented hard drive or a fat and sick register file from too many
other applications installed.
