not as a general rule, and very unlikely to pass AIS.

The other thing that I know will stir up a lot of controversy here is I plan to buy a RAM mount to put my Netbook in the cockpit.
not from me nothing wrong with using a laptop as long as you take reasonable care and understand any potential limitations. though for obvious reasons my opinion on software selection would differ.

I got my netbook splashed a few times, thanks to wakes of passing powerboats. It's still doing ok.
