MacBook vs Rain LiveBook AFX?
#1025611 - 22/12/12 07:22 PM
I'm currently looking to get a new laptop which I can do audio
production on. Up til now I've been using Windows and Cubase. I was looking at Macbooks,
but I had a look at some alternatives and came across the Rain LiveBook AFX which seems to
have really good specs for the price and slightly cheaper than a Macbook given the specs.
Problem is I can't find any reviews for it.
Has anyone used a Rain Livebook?
These are the specs I've seen:
2.6GHz Intel Core i7 Quad-Core [6MB Cache] 8GB RAM 120GB SSD Drive And also a 750 GB Hard drive And also a DVD-RW
drive 15.6" screen eSATA, 3xUSB3, 1xUSB2
$2,199 = £1360 GBP
vs. 15" MacBook Pro - similar specs and same price but without the 120GB SSD drive and
fewer USB ports.
Also, the Rain Livebook has a numerical keypad on the keyboard
which could be useful for shortcuts.
Lenovo laptops are also meant to be good
Has anyone used any of these or have any suggestions?
