Re: Which laptop(s) are you using?

I am currently running of a 13" MBP 2011 i5 / 4GB RAM / 320GB wired to a 27" Apple Thunderbolt Display.
I LOVE MY SETUP AND WOULDN'T CHANGE A THING.

I can unplug my laptop on the road and still have all my work... but go home and be able to produce on the big screen. Highly suggested going the way I am... especially if it's just music creation you're doing on a MBP.

I haven't experienced any problems or slow down.

I use an old HP DV6 which overheats and shuts down unless I place it in an angle off the table with a tablemat or something similar. Good stuff.

Re: Which laptop(s) are you using?

HP DV6, and I love it. I've had it for about 2 years now, and I haven't had a single problem with it. It is a dedicated DAW laptop - no games, no nothing. I don't even go online with it except to check for new versions of Reaper and download new VSTs.

At the time it was the only laptop I could afford that had a 7200 RPM HD, and since I record a lot of audio, I knew this was important. I've got Win7 64bit, 8 GB of RAM.

Re: Which laptop(s) are you using?

I started with a Dell inspiron 14r which i liked a lot but it tended to lag a lot especially on large projects. Also the Battery was terrible. Now I am using a macbook pro 13 i5 which i absolutely love. Havent come close to maxing out live yet which has been amazing. I can also work unplugged for several hours before i run low on power.
