This means your average laptop won't do. The audio is pretty crappy on those so add a nice Creative Labs device like http://us.creative.com/products/product.asp?category=1&subcategory=205&product=10769
Now that you've replaced the usual cheap audio, the rest of the machine should be easy to pick.
hey everyone. i'm currently going to be going to college in september and i'm looking around for the right laptop for what i plan on doing in school and my future career. i plan on becomg a recording artist and plan on starting to record my own stuff this year as well so i would like to find a computer that can handle good audio and video programs, have lots of memory for music, photos, video's etc,etc,etc that i plan on putting onto this laptop. i also want one thats really fast and that won't lag if i have more then one program open at one time(something with duelcore). if i can any suggestions on which laptop i should get for my situation it would be greatly appreciated. thank you very much.
