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.
