Why don't you try it?

According to the Mathworks site, you'll need at least "Any Intel or AMD x86 processor supporting SSE2 instruction set*". Doesn't seem that the Atom N450 will be sufficient. You can always try and load it to see if it even runs.

The N450 Supports SSE2. Even SSE3 and SSSE3.

It seems that Matlab is a processor intensive application. It involves mathematical, statistical, and engineering functions to support all common engineering and science operations. He may be better off using an Athlon or Pentium based laptop, with at least 3GB RAM, rather than a netbook. Is the Atom N450 up to this task? Won't know for sure unless the OP tries.

I think (but never tried myself) that the Matlab program isn't that much processor intensive application, unless you make very complex mathematical processes like a NASA engineer. 2GB RAM is more than enough (supported by N450), and yes, the N450 is much more than a simple Pentium based processor (Athlon and Pentium are more than 10 years old development from now). Of course if you have better processor and/or more RAM you got better results, but it's a common think.

The question is if he/she have the 1012 and the prog, why don't try it by itself instead of asking?

LOL, I used MATLAB when I was in college over 15 years ago. Unless you're running complicated numbers it will run fine, just may take a little longer than a traditional laptop or desktop.

However, I have to say running Prime95 on the Mini10 is like watching snail races.
