I am purchasing a Traqmate from another racer, and was wondering what the laptop requirments were to run their software properly (processor, RAM,etc.). My son has a 4yr old Gateway he is getting rid of (not sure of the spec's), and just want to know if this will handle it, or if i need something a little more current.

That will be more than adequate, unless you want to run the Traqstudio which incorporates the video (RaceCam or others). Then you might find the playback jerky. Traqmate data program doesnt require much processing power

The main issue with netbooks is that they do not have CD/DVD drives to allow you to install software. You would need an add-on drive to install the software. I have also seen netbooks that don't even have a USB drive, so how would you get the data into the netbook? IMHO, a netbook is nothing more than a Blackberry with a large screen.

I run traqmate on a 5 year old beater laptop with a P4 processor, windows XP, and 1GB ram. It's old enough that I don't worry too much about the laptop "walking away" from the garage at the track. Traqmate software is not very resource hungry.
