I'm in the UK, use a tascam us1800, use Cubase with max 30 channels (audio/vst mix), have about £400 and need a new laptop.
I would love some ideas from you lovely people so I don't end up with a dud (again)!
Thanks in advance, Pete.
Someone mentioned Tescos?
I have an HP i3 virtually the same and I have run 20 Cubase tracks no problem. Works sweetly with my NI KA6. I upped the memory to 8G a few months ago. Not noticed any dramatic changes except it gets a bit warmer!
BTW Be careful of the net adverts, even Amazon. I recently bought a refurbed Lenovo "laptop" and it turned out to be a Notepad, "ThinkPad" Lenovo call them. Ok, grandson LOVES it but for music work you would be PO'ed. Limited connectivity and no optical drive. Even said "laptop" on the invoice!
Hah! I was just looking for an HP i5 advert! Did not see that was a bad review. I think the guy was unlucky, this is my second HP laptop and I have an HP desktop. Could not be happier.
