i5 or i7 13" MB Pro for Ableton / Max AND Jitter use LIVE?
      01/02/12 06:43 PM
Hi!

I'm going to be playing live using Ableton Live 8 (not the suite) as the main host with Max for Live (latest version). On some tracks I'll be suing jitter devices within Max For live to manipulate Video with audio / midi etc. I'll also be using video clip directly within Ableton live.

I need a new laptop (13") and wondered whether I'd be better off with an i5 with 8gb RAM or an i7. My own feeling is that an i5 would suffice. We may use a second laptop to play out of Ableton and leave the new one dealing with video but if enough people felt we could get away with it we'd try to use one laptop for all. Am I dreaming?

Btw I appreciate that this is a perennial i5 or i7 debate / question. I did do a search but I was interested specifically in usage with Ableton AND Max For Live. I am new to both.

I really appreciate your thoughts!
