I do mostly music, and am in the process of learning FCP.

Considering a MB for now - how much would it be worth in 6 months after MBP come out with cooler chips?

Anyway, looking at black MB perhaps, maybe white with 2GB DDR.

I have Nuendo/SX, AMD64, Reason, Live, and numerous VST libraries and Orchestral Libraries (I will miss my Gigastudio- - is there a way to make them talk to each other?)..... :headphone

Anyway, back to my question, has anyone here in the audio/video world, who has switched, become more creative? How so? How did you overcome some of the software limitations, or non universal to date?

I want to hear success stories, work-flow, etc!

Getting ready soon!

Especially for those late night ideas, even though I have a laptop!

I've played around with reason, acid, soundforge and a couple other music creation suites. With what apple gives you out of the gate I feel as though I'm actually learning some things and I've been given the ability to understand it more. I've played an instrument since I was about 9 or 10 so I can read music as well. I've found a significant amount of sites that promote sharing music created in garageband and that's always welcome when you just want some perspective on something you've done.

A computer does not make a person creative. Their talent does.
