Default Small computer for live use

Hi, I was wondering if it was possible to make a small computer (the size of a sony psp) with a software platform that was able to run vst effects, particularly for live use.

This might seem a little to advanced to make? What are your thoughts?

Oh absolutely! Heck you could probably find someone to make a java application to run it off of your phone in some way. But yea just search around. I would recommend not buying Macs as they break quite easily and I have found to be quite a hassle as their software tends to screw itself over again and again (no offense mac users) but the simpler the device the less problems you will have so good luck.

Ceratinly not the case when compared to Windows PCs or generic PC hardware in general. There are lots of stats to back that up.

These stats are easy to explain :

1. People who buy a Mac are less likely to break it compared to the masses who
buy a WinTel machine. This does not make the Mac de facto less breakable.
2. People who buy a Mac are able to solve problems themselves without going
online and whining about their broken computer.
3. There is more software, written by (fill in yourself) on WinTell which will break
the underlying os.

and lets face it... apples quality control is appauling, the after service is just as bad, once it goes they just advise you to buy a new one!!!

if you really want a mac, build a hackintosh for a fifth of the price that will be more reliable too, and if something goes on it, you won't be in a queue at apple to finally get told "sorry its the logic board, it will cost you 500 uk pounds to fix"

where do they get off calling a motherboard a logic board?
