If you are a musician or a home recording enthusiast who is looking for a perfect laptop for your studio, then you should keep in mind that rather than the brand (we know you want a brand to show off, along with that) the specifications matter the most for you guys.
So before you go buying your dream studio system, have a look at these points to give you more idea :
Hard drive: Yes, it is one of the important components you need to look at. Always choose a hard drive with storage space of anything more than 360GB as you need loads of space. Consider the Faster hard disks which at least give 7500 RPMs. If you have external hard disk ports then its an additional advantage.
RAM: A studio laptop requires a lot of RAM. Do not settle for lesser RAM; make sure you own at least 4GB RAM (this is the least capacity). You require a good amount of RAM as you’ll be running many plug-ins and VST’s
CPU: You definitely need a very fast processor. So search for better high-end ones. The lower end processors will hamper the encoding speed of your recordings and will take lots of time. You can consider multi-core processors like quad or octa-core processors.
Display: Having a very good spec in the laptop with a low-resolution screen, will kill that entire feel of using a good laptop studio. So, it’s good to opt for a better screen, and if your budget allows you can always go for a high-end HD display screen.
Cost: Keep your budget in mind and then decide the components and specs of your system. As said earlier, sometimes rather than going just for HI-FI brands and paying higher, it is better to opt for a good and trusted and tested ones. It’ll do the same job for a much lesser price!
With all these points in mind, it is much easier for you to select the best laptop for your portable sound recording studio.
