I don't think it will burn up the graphics adapter (I really don't think a network has the capacity to have a "card")...........I just think SL will not run at all.  If you get to the log in page, that's about as far as I expect any netbook will get (unless heavily tweaked by someone who knows what they are doing).

I have run SL on an eMachine d250 with no problems other than very low frame rate.

Windows 7 starter 32 bit

Intel Atom at 1.66ghz

intel 945 on board graphics

memory upgraded to 2MB

while I wouldn't recommend this as the only computer to run second life on, It is useful to pop in and check messages or stand still and chat. Using the current release ( as of 05/17/2012) of the linden labs viewer i get around 3 frames per second with this netbook. Voice chat, text chat, and sound work well.

when I first started in SL over a year and a half ago I only used this netbook. The previous versions of the LL viewer circa 2.1 (depending on graphics settings) would get up to 10 fps on this tiny computer.
