advice on secondhand Mac set up
      04/12/11 03:37 PM
hi all
been out of recording world for a few years but am back in, (like a relapse)
I am going to try the mac route and want advice on secondhand buying.
I have £1,0000. Ihave all mic, interfaqce speakers etc. I just want a mac (laptop) and some software to compose and record on . Wont have masssive numbers of tracks and will only record a voc, a guitar etc. NO multiple mic set ups. I want any keyboards and drums to be in the mac so I can take the lot out and about
I can see there are lots of mac models and lots of upgrades etc. ALso quite a few opportunities to buy when people upgrade .
my question is are there any 'mac books to avoid' for music, how far back i can safely go and particular advice on what to look for or avoid . Dont mind which DAW although Logic looks interesting

good mac books + software to look for or avoid ?
