« The best computer systems for audio »Published on 08/14/12 at 19:34
But with Apple computers, particularly with their laptops, everything just works so much better. Think about it: Apple makes the hardware, they make the operating systems, and they make the audio software. Microsoft only makes software, HP, Dell, and other computer manufacturers only assemble the hardware, and other companies such as Cakewalk only make the audio software. And for audio, where low, consistent latency is key, it is important to have all of those components under one roof, as it is with Apple.
The laptops, no doubt, can be expensive. The model here that I bought was almost three times as expensive as my HP laptop, and both were purchased as refurbished units. But with just over half a year of use, I am completely happy with my purchase. Apple laptops are a breeze to use, and the touch-pad/click-pad is simply amazing. There is no need to use a mouse at anytime, whereas on other laptops, a mouse made life easier. Definitely check one of these out, if you are in need of a more professional audio solution.
