I just installed VS Shell, F# and VSLab R2D2 on my brand new Acer Aspire One sub notebook. I have the 8Gb HD SSD version (featuring Atom processor and 512Mb RAM) so I was curious to see if I can use it for development on the way. I am impressed, really, because I've been able to run VSLab on it and it works great, including 3D graphics as witnessed by the following snapshot:
The only drawback is that disk writes are very slow, but this really matters during installations. I think that VS Shell and F# teams did a very great job. This makes VSLab great for laboratory and scientific computing.
