Help! Netbook setup

Hep hey!

I'm currently working on my Asus EeePC as my laptop decided to kill itself and there isn't enough money for a new :(

Still I want to create music. But I've got no CPU power and the VSTi I use is way too heavy for the little netbook thingie.

I'm currently using Studio One or Cubase SX3 (I also got access to Cubase Essentials5). Studio One is handling the dataflow and things in a way that takes up way to much CPU time and Cubase SX3 is getting on my nerves. What to do? I also tested Reaper, but it can't handle my tiny 10" monitor.

I really need some good sounding VSTi synths + drummachines which uses little CPU power.

The TAL stuff is pretty decent material and not very CPU intensive as far as I know:

Products

There's also the line up of Synapse's synths:

-Hydra
-Poly850
-Scorpion

Lennar Digital's Sylenth1 sounds great and may be CPU friendly along with GForce's impOSCar.

And as I'm a 303 lover, you should also look into Audiorealism's Bassline 2 (and their Bassline Pro which isn't a 303 at all but a great synth).

Hope those help!

Quick answer... Thanks a lot
The TAL instruments are unfortunately not that well programmed and they tend to crash or make soundglitches when pushed.

I'll have a look at those others instruments ...
