    Default macbook pro or windows laptop for making music / djing?

    Have a VAIO VGNFE31 M at the moment. Two years old, using it for work, so wish to invest in something purely for music and DJing.

    Would love any advice or tips. Have looked at Logic and Ableton for composing.

    Cheers

    I use both, PC & Mac, I prefer my MB for Traktor. But it comes down to how much money you have to kill. Keep an eye out for discounted MB & MBP the prices are under 1k

    Yeap the answer is pretty simple:

    Want to use Logic, go mac!
    Want to use Cubase go PC or you could chose mac for that as well.

    Mind you the variety of VST's are much larger on PC!

    I would go Mac, but thats just me.

    (I use both Win and OSX)

    Wow, I think this is the most civil MB/PC discussion I've ever seen. We win!

    I'm a PC user. I'd recommend them. You get more bang for your buck, and if you use em right they'll go strong for a while.

    But in the end it can simply be a discussion of what you want to use. If you want to use Logic for all it's power you need a mac. If you're open to different DAW softwarez then you can shop around more.

    If the workflow on a mac isn't your thing it answers this question kinda quickly too. Whereas if the systems in Windows don't work in your mind than Mac is the way the go.
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    I'm materialistic and a fanboy so I need a MacBook Pro.

    Plus I love how the logo lights up on the back of the screen.
