Audio recording, need laptop suggestions

by MisfitsTimmy / February 6, 2011 6:17 AM PST

My old laptop is dying and my tax refund is coming(yay!). I've got abut $2200 to work with. I am looking for a new laptop and I would like one that would be suitable for recording music in my home and maybe in a live setting. I would love some suggestions as to which laptop you think would work for this.

Yeah, my bad. I meant a laptop that's good for recording using an interface like that one. Yeah, the built in sound interface on laptops is crap.
