Macbook Pro For Music Production ???

Postby DigitalMusicProduction » Thu Oct 29, 2020 7:56 pm

Hi

Could anyone recommend a reputed online site that builds customized Macs? Looking to buy a refurbished Macbook Pro for music production, nothing to heavy, mainly light projects in Garagband or Logic. 16GB ram, 512GB SSD, OS Mojave.

Thanks.

I'm not sure what you mean by "builds customized Macbook Pros"?

Modern ones aren't really customisable internally - you might be able to replace the SSD, but that's about it. You just basically buy the spec you want. Any reasonably modern Mac will happily run "light" projects in GB or Logic.

Apple sell refurbished computers at a discount. You don’t specify your budget but what you have specified are available as standard or build to order. These higher specification computers are regularly available as refurbished. Do you want the 23” or 16” MBP?

the 23” yes please!
Seriously I’d also suggest the Apple refurb store. Good discounts and literally look brand new. I’ve had 3 iMacs this way.

Sorry that should have been 13” as I’m sure you were aware.
