    Unhappy Logic Pro 7 For Mac Books
    im just about to get my first mac. i plan on using it for school work, internet and most of all creating music using logic pro 7.

    at the moment im at college and use mini macs with the logic pro 7. the software runs ok.. but can be sluggish and freezing tracks takes ages arghh.

    im wondering whether the mac book will give me this trouble. im gonna get the highest spec mac book with the 2GHZ. i know theres the mac book pros but im limited to a budget of about a 1000. (the mac books cost around 899 mac book pros about 1,399)

    i checked the specs and the only difference's seem to be a very slightly fast prosessor 2.13ghz rather that the 2ghz. the better graphics card and tiny bit larger screen. or do these really make the difference???

    anything else i should know thats different?

    i'd just like to know if logic runs ok on mac books. i dont really wanna waste money on somethin poor


    any help please much appreciated:black:

    The macbook will be fine for basic work in logic express, but for really intensive multitrack projects, you will not get a computer in your budget that will work with them smoothly. Powermacs and MacPros are your only option for good playback of many track projects.

    It depends on the mini.. If your using a mini g4, the the macbook will run faster, if your running a core duo mini, the the performance will most likely be the same.
