- I’m looking for a laptop that can handle DAW programs with multiple plugins running smoothly. I need a laptop powerful enough to handle a great quality mic without distortion or latency.
- The 4k isn’t necessary, but I would like the laptop to be able to run programs like “final cut” easily, and play 1080p…720p minimum.
- Gaming isn’t a top priority, of one at all. You can circumvent the high price margin by subtraction the cost for high graphics cards.
- Last thing.. I want quad processor and a high rpm. If not quad, atleast ast enough to fulfill the specifications I outlines in number 1.
Our Laptop Suggestion
For music creation and editing, I tried to find laptops that had a powerful i7 processor, the more RAM possible, a SSD hard drive for faster data processing and of course a HD screen. And they will also all manage to run Final Cut.
- The 15-inch Lenovo 510 would be a good choice at $660. It has a good screen and audio, an i7 (2 cores), 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD hard drive. For $720, you can also get the more powerful Lenovo 510 with a dedicated graphic card and 12 GB of RAM.
- The powerful Acer Aspire E5-575G-76K could also be a good value choice. It has a 15-inch HD screen, i7, 8 GB, 256GB and a long battery life.
- If portability is a factor, you could go with the Lenovo 710s. It’s a little over your budget, but it’s also a lighter 14-inch with an i7, 8GB of RAM and a SSD drive.
I hope that helps! Write back to let me know which one you chose or if you have any more questions,
