Best computers for musicians? Opinions please
Alright, I have had enough. I've had my MacBook for 7 years and it has served me well, but it's getting on my nerves. I use it to record myself when I practice and play along with tracks, but now every couple minutes the fan comes on so loud you'd think a plane was taking off, so my recordings sound terrible...if my computer can make it through a whole recording without failing. Argh!
I'm giving in and getting a new computer, so I was wondering what you guys suggest. Stick with a MacBook? How is the ipad? Do I dare cross into the PC realm, or is Mac still the way to go for musicians? I see a lot of people using ipads for lead sheets in jams now; has anyone done that? I primarily use my computer for surfing the web and recording music, so something with good music software options is important. I'm willing to shell out money for BIAB too. I am still recovering from being a broke college kid, so this will be a hefty investment for my wallet and I want to make sure it's a good one.
