So i need a laptop for the road, all I have is a PC that needs a little tlc to be optimal.
My neighbour has an 08 macbook (aluminum) hes going to sell. He will update the OS.
It has the 2GB processor with 2GB RAM (im not worried about storage, my music collection is not large). What I am wondering is
A) will it run Reaper and Guitar Rig 5 (i think) OK with those specs?
B) can i upgrade the RAM to 4GB for a model that old, relatively cheaply so it will run the programs? Besides recording demo ideas i will use it for skype, browsing, email and maybe a dabble of word processing.
Aside from that i am looking at refurbished acer models at the $399 mark (a better computer).
2GB RAM = no way for Reaper. Good news: 8GB is cheap.
