    Default Windows Equivalent of a MacBook Pro

    Hey All,

    Was just wondering what you all would consider to be a Windows laptop that would rival or be the windows alternative to using a MacBook Pro??

    Thanks in advance,

    Raul

    OMG

    The Rain LiveBook Studio is so sexy.

    Custom tuned Windows7 OS for audio/ video processing stability.

    Custom tunes system BIOS to the same effect.

    SPECIFICALLY customized for stability in programs like... Traktor, Pro Tools, and Premier.

    I want.

    Those are also full towers.

    Shove that all in a stable laptop like the LiveBook, and sell that at the same price point, then I would be stoked.

    I have a hack-book hard drive because I really do accept that OSX is an incredible platform.

    But even it is not SPECIFICALLY tuned for audio/video processing, and the programs associated with them.

    The LiveBook has a custom tuned, by Rain, BIOS with a custom tuned, by Rain, OS install.

    That is legit. And it costs money.

    Quo sells hardware with drivers.

    Rain modifies the base BIOS, as well as the OS they sell you, on top of optimizing this, and all the drivers for the device, for the most popular music and video production software.

    Definitely points to Rain...


    When I have the money. As no matter where I go in this life, it will be in music, I have already made that decision. So when its financially responsible to do so, a 13" LiveBook Studio will be mine.
