I found an old thread about the Eeepc, and also one about the Acer Aspire One ... and got curious.
I tried it with my EeePC 701, the basic one with 7 inch screen, celeron processor and 512 megs of RAM, and guess what: it works with vinyl control! And for your entertainment, here is a crappy video to prove it. Sorry for the bad quality and the less-than-average one-handed mixing, I had to record it with the camcorder in my other hand.

You can run DJDecks, and as you can see, with a buffer setting of 256 on my ESI U46DJ, overall speed is quite good.

Of course you have to tinker with the settings a lot and basically tweak the program for the lowest CPU usage possible. Basically, if you want to use vinyl control, you will have to turn off every single option that is not absolutely necessary for basic manual beatmatching, use streaming asio and the option to lower the vinyl control CPU usage (which will decrease the precision, but as long as you don't try to do wild scratches and only go for beatmatching, it will be good enough). You will also have to use a basic skin that does not use too much CPU. As much as I love Coreys SPM Skin (default on my macbook), the EeePC just won't cut it with that. Neither with Dunks skins.
Oh, and you have to get the eeectl tool to clock the CPU to 900 mhz, which is not a problem as that is the actual processor speed. The Eeepc on default settings is underclocked to 600-something mhz to save battery life. And of course Wifi has to be turned off, or you get dropouts.

The main problem isn't the CPU, it is of course the tiny screen and it's resolution. With the skin I used (Vinyl Control skin without BPM counter), the actual decks are big enough and so are the waveforms on top. The fonts on the playlists are too small though. An optimized skin for netbooks like an EeePC would probably help a lot, and my best guess is that it would kind of like the Vinyl Control skin, but with bigger fonts for the playlist and a bigger waveform overview for the whole file.

The good news for those of you that use some kind of DJ Console or MIDI controller instead of vinyl control is that this combination uses a lot less CPU than one with two vinyl control decks. I tried it with my Numark Total Control and was surprised how good that works. I could also turn most of those settings back on that I had to deactivate to save CPU for vinyl control.

I would still like to hear someone who tried DJDecks on an Atom CPU.

Here are screenshots of my settings:



oh, and too bad you can't embed videos here... at least I can't.
