  1. Do you know if there sound efficient? With a form factor like that I can't imagine there's much for heat diversion.
  2. Pro Tools, Ableton, Premiere/final cut I've always had a laptop in the past, but it literally never leaves the desk so either is fine.
  3. I'd like to not spend more than $1200, but I'm not in immediate need so I can save up.
  4. Performance, as I need to run pro tools, Ableton, and premiere. So at a minimum I'll need an i7 and 32gb ram, strong video card is optional but it'd be nice.
  5. Hello all, I'm thinking I need to switch to a Mac, but the price points are a little crazy. I'd use it for audio and video editing. What's the best way to get an affordable device? Buy the lowest options available and upgrade the hardware myself? Buy upgraded used hardware? I'd need at least an i7 and 32gb ram in order to effectively run the programs I'll need for work. Thanks!!
  6. I've used windows my whole life, but I'm trying to weigh the true productivity value of switching at this point. I'm in the United States, zero weight/battery preferences, as I will rarely ever use it away from a desk.
  7. I feared that... I'm not a fan of apple or it's inflated prices. Any chance you have any experience with the refurbed macs floating around online? I can pick up something with enough juice between $600-800 but idk if they're to be trusted you know?
  8. Hello all, I have been using a Dell XPS 15" with an i7 and 32gb ram for audio production with protools. Between random black screens only solved with a soft reset of the machine and occasional slow downs bringing even web browsing to a staggering hault (with no viruses mind you), I am so done with this laptop. I'm now at a point in my career where I need to also learn some video editing, although I doubt I'll be getting into any complex graphic rendering. I'd like to be able to game on it occasionally, but it's not a priority and I'm rarely playing anything on the cutting edge of graphic technology. My budget is somewhat limited, and I'd like to stay within the $800-$1100 if possible. I'm open to all suggestions!
  9. Eluctronics and Clevo both have one under the P650HS model number, but you're probably talking about the Clevo right? Even on sale it's just a tad more than I want to spend, as is the raider. Speaking of eluctronics though, have you heard anything good about them? Their products keep popping up in my searches.
  10. I'm going to be starting school soon, so I need to update now. My old computer works for browsing the web and now much else these days.
  11. Yeahhhh y'all hit the nail on the head. I wasn't looking at the laptop I thought it was. Thanks guys.
  12. Is that even right? Everywhere I've seen this PC the prices have been at least 3000. Is this a deal that needs to be jumped on, or some kind of mistake? http://m.tigerdirect.com/products/6046680?SRCCODE=3WCJ&utm_source=cj&utm_content=6361382&utm_term=12612265
  13. Maybe that was an outdated version of the compatibility specs? This page shows that I need at least an i5 for Windows http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/compatibility/Pro-Tools-System-Requirements
  14. Whoops you're right. Less than 1500 is ideal. I'd likely only be hauling it between home and work, so it's not that big of a deal. I think 15" hits it in the sweet spot.
  15. Some type c ports would be nice, and an HDMI plug. I'm not huge on using external moniters so plugging into a TV when I need to is fine. I think you're right about logic. In my mind I was thinking Ableton but it seems like you knew what I meant. Good tactile feedback when typing away could be cool, but I'm not sure how to search for that when looking at computers online lol. RGB keys aren't necessary but I wouldn't hate them either. A nice screen panel for watching/editing. That being said, I'm really flexible on the creature comforts part.
