looking for a PC laptop that can comfortably handle Sonar 7 producer and alternate as a graphics workstation. Musts: 17" screen, min 1 gig RAM. Wants: intel chipset, n Vidia card pref. w external (dual?) monitor support, 7200 rpm drive. Budjet <$3000.
I've heard nothing but excellent reviews about ADK Pro Audio (adkproaudio.com) from the Cakewalk forums. Laptop model ADK 9000 is a 17" desktop replacement and I configured one for $2987. I'm assuming that you already have an audio interface.
Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 2.33 ghz
3 gb RAM
200 gb SATA II hdd 7200rpm
Geforce Go 8700GT Dual head
Windows XP Pro
I realize that 7 months have past since your post, but if you're still looking, ADK is the way to go.
