My setup here is a Macbook Pro with Leopard OSX. I have a 4 gb dualcore processor. I use Reason for tracking/composing and Logic for mixing, on the rare occasion that I use either program. I tend to be more of a Pro Tools guy in general but I do like having another DAW for comparison and for more MIDI-based music. I've never really thought that the Strings bundle didn't work for any of my projects here.
There is a ton of variation as far as these loops go. I would say that there is probably a loop that will fit anything you are working on in reason, considering that about 95% of music made in this program is based on hip-hop or techno variations of some sort (to be as broad as I possibly can).
To be honest, though, I don't think a prerecorded sample could ever work for me. Even though these will sound better than any MIDI-sampled keyboard, I don't like the fact that it won't be an original score. I would like to score almost all the string parts myself and I don't like the idea of having pre-recorded loops to choose from, even if they do sound great. I can't help but think that this is the same reason that so much music sounds the same.
I know I may be biased in my opinion, so that's why I'm going to say that for what it is (a collection of pre-recorded string samples) Propellerhead Strings is a good product. However, I can't recommend that you use them in your original compositions, because frankly, it will no longer be as original. Make your own string samples! It's a good price, though, and if you are just a dabbler in this and don't mind making uninspired music, I would say you're in for a treat. Have fun getting all the creativity done for you.
