- What is so special that you love the most, the least?
Large 17 "screen with high resolution 1680x1050 very convenient to display a maximum of information with software such as Steinberg Cubase or Ableton Live.
Power more than adequate for creating audio for games (Core 2 Duo T8300 2.4 Ghz, 3 GB DDR2, 320 GB HDD, GeForce 8600M GT).
Embedded numeric keypad.
FireWire stable with a MOTU Ultralite (buffer to 1024 to avoid desync).
A bit noisy but still acceptable, especially on stage (given the size of rooms, you really have to be next to hear).
Very hot! Do not use on the lap
- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
No, but I spent a lot of time on different forums to give me sufficient notice to avoid a purchase that I have regretted.
- How do you value for money?
PC relatively expensive (€ 1179 purchased in April 2008) but considering its performance and reliability, it's worth it!
- With experience, you do again this election? ...
The computer is an area that is evolving very quickly, my choice would definitely a new model. In contrast, the GX700-207 is a good pc for those who can afford it.
