Good info skua !
The reason I want to buy a laptop is because I need something for casual browsing, email, youtube, word processing, some video editing and recording my music. I either have to buy a laptop and a desktop (both), or just get a laptop that I can use for all those things. I don’t want to only have a desktop because I don’t want to be tied to it in my basement when I’m doing my daily internet browsing. I like to sit back on my couch, where it’s comfortable. It’s also nice to be able to bring the laptop anywhere in the house. It might end up costing more if I get a good desktop and a reasonably usable laptop. That’s the reason I’m thinking of buying just a laptop. The laptop I’m using right now isn’t mine…I should have mentioned that first, haha.
I’m a little unsure if I need lots of RAM. The consensus seems to be that 8 GB is a safe minimum requirement but 16 Gigs would be more assuring. Do you think 8 GB would be sufficient if I’m recording up to 30 tracks occasionally ?
