That way we can see if your new machine is better or worse.
Looking for a laptop to run FL studio, trying to stay under $700. I've have been doing some research but there are so many different versions of processors I'm getting overwhelmed.
Would an i5-4200m, 8gb ram, 1 TB HD, windows 7 be ok for this? Should I stay away from the processors with U at the end? Dual core or go ahead and get an i7 quad?
The music production is just a hobby and laptop would be used for FL studio and Internet. I only have a little knowledge of computers and I have never bought a laptop. I just want something that is mid ranged and will get good use out of it, don't want top of the line.
Forgot to mention this
Soundcard with DirectSound drivers. ASIO/ASIO2 compatible required for audio recording (FL Studio installs with generic ASIO4ALL drivers)
All the laptops I have looked do not mention anything about this, how can tell if it has this?
I have been looking at dell, lenovo, acer, and asus. HP have some in my price range but I always heard to stay away from HP not sure if that still holds.
