Hi guys!

Just joined this great Forum and this is my first Post.

Here's what I need a 13" MacBook Pro to do for me.

I will use it at home to record my original songs, and I will use Logic Pro 9, MainStage 2 and Addictive Drums on it.

I will purchase a USB Interface that will have 4 inputs and 4 outputs.

The most I will ever record at one time will be 2 tracks, perhaps 4 (if I record my Kronos in stereo and Addictive Drums in stereo, all at the same time).

What I plan to do is get enough of the song down so I can take it to my Guitar Players Studio, where he has a ProTools HDX System (and Logic Pro 9 as well) and he will add Guitar, a real Bass, backup Vocals, etc.

So my question is, for my needs, will a 2.5 GHz i5 with 8GB and a 500GB Hard Drive work as well as a i7 2.9 GHz with 4GB and a 750GB Hard Drive?

QUOTE Thanks
