Hello!

I'm sorry if this question has been asked lots of times before, but I felt I had to ask personally.
Basically, I am looking to switch to a mac in order to enhance the music program Ableton I will buy with it.
This music making software I know is very popular, but I was wondered which mac pc or notepad I should purchase that is best for making music on? I am not a gamer online, I just want to be able to make music on it.


Any advice or direction will be really appreciated, as I'm not sure which way to turn!!!!!!!!

Thanks

Paul

First, it's Mac..

Second..there are a LARGE number of posts about this specifically..so you don't really need to ask the same question since you aren't asking anything very unique..

Having said all that..what is your budget? Do you prefer the portability of a laptop or the lack of one with a desktop?

Regards

Mac: a brand name which covers several lines of personal computers designed, developed, and marketed by Apple Inc.

Ditto for iPod.
As long as we are being a stickler for details...

The correct name for the raincoat is "mackintosh" with the "k" following the "mac" and, yes, it is not capitalized even though it is named after its inventor, Charles Macintosh (whose name doesn't have a "k" in it...go figure).

There's your little bit of nearly useless trivia for the day.

Oh, yeah... you left out "Big Mac," the famous (or infamous depending on your point of view) hamburger served by McDonalds.

Well I guess we could also include MAC (Military Airlift Command)...and "Mac & Cheese".
