hey guys,
this is my first post on this forum and im looking for a bit of help and guidance on what specs i should get on a macbook pro.
the macbook is going to manly be used for recording (around 12 audio tracks at a time) and mixing and i will be using logic studio 9.
right here is the specs im looking at:
Macbook Pro 15 inch
2.0GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7
500 GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200 rpm
MacBook Pro 15-inch Glossy Widescreen Display

so what are your opinion? will this be good enough?
i have few extra questions to
1) should i just go with the 4 GB RAM and upgrade it later through another company? but does this void my warranty? and what are so good UK based company which upgrade RAM?
2) will that processor be enough? is it worth going for the 2.2 GHz one?

cheers guys, your feedback would be amazing
QUOTE Thanks

For any piece of electronic equipment, from phones to TVs to computers, ALWAYS buy the best you can afford.

Keep in mind, you can always upgrade the ram, but not the processor. If you can go ahead and get both done at the ordering process, do it.
