    :smoking: Got tired of my MSI laptop overheating and just sucking in general. Started looking, and the prices for the 2015 Macbook Pro's weren't too bad. Looking around, I found a 256gb i5 model for $450 and jumped on it. Should be able to sell my MSI for more than that. I have a gaming...
  2. Music: Recording Studio
    I just moved to apartment so I can't track drums at home anymore, so I have to get a laptop I can carry to rehearsal space. Most importantly, I don't wanna spend money on a Mac of any kind. For operating system I think I would prefer Windows 7 over 8, actually, even tho they aren't as common...

    So after both I and Steven Slate customer support failed at helping me with my SSD4 problems I decided to try something new My main rig is a "homebuilt" PC with good enough specs for me I also have a laptop with Cubase 7 installed, but it's old and was cheap to begin with so it's quite...
  4. Music: Recording Studio
    Hey, I'm wondering if anyone could advise me at all please? My band recorded an awful demo last year and now we're writing better stuff to make something much better and we're working towards playing live again. Last time, we went to the 'studio' barn of another local band to record everything...

    Got it narrowed down to three options...they are all pretty close spec wise, but I don't have enough know how with brands these days to know what's good and what isn't. HP Pavilion 15.6-Inch Laptop (15-p066us) | Staples® Lenovo Flex 2 15 Dual Mode Laptop Computer With 156 Touch Screen Display...

    I have a dell inspiron n5110, with intel i7 2.00ghz, 8gb ram, nvidia geforce 525m. I began using reaper for recording mixing and mastering. Unfortunately, probably because of the many plugins I am using for symphonic metal, reaper is unable to handle the plugins and in playback, even in offline...

    This has just been sitting around and I don't use it so I may as well sell it to someone that needs it. This is mint, still has original box and all manuals with it. Not a single ding, dent, chip, scratch, or scuff on it. You can find specs at this link (it's accurate except it states it has a...

    As the title states. I haven't really given this thing too much use, aside from the occasional scratch track recording or googling adorable baby animal pictures, so I figured - There's some gear I could use that I'd be willing to let this go for. Specs are : Alienware 14 : Standard Base 4th...

    Wirelessly posted (Box Smasher) Hi guys, I am looking to get my wife a basic laptop for her business. She needs word, excel, etc. a Chromebook would be perfect, but she had been designing wedding invites (in Word, lol), so I want to get her something that can run Adobe Illustrator. I don't...

    My main questions are is there an advantage to mSATA over standard SSD drives, and I'm opting for the 1 tb 5400 hybrid drive because it is SATA III over the 1 tb 7200 drive because it is SATA II. It seems if the OS is mSATA in that capacity, the 5400 hybrid will be fine. I also don't know...

    Hey guys, I'm relatively new here. :) I've spent quite a lot of time of SS.org and decided recently to come here a bit more often. :yesway: Anyways, I am in the market for a laptop that I can use for recording. I currently am using a piece of shit HP that's about 4 years old and it's not cutting...

    Just kidding. MacBook Air 13", 1.7ghz Haswell i7, 8GB, and a 512GB SSD. I love this thing. Just under 3 pounds, but twice as fast as the old MBP it replaces, and the SSD is just sick; 700MB/sec write, 725MB read. I love little laptops. Makes my work retina 15" feel like a tank. Can't wait...

    I've been doing all of my recording on a Dell Netbook and it can't keep up with what I'm trying to do. I'll try to be as specific as possible of what I need: -My budget will be 400-700 dollars, hopefully this is enough -Has to be a laptop, it is also going to be my "school" computer that I...

    After all, it's got a handle. Interesting laptop. Not too heavy, feels pretty solid. We'll see how it holds up in the coal power plants. The MacBooks have been holding up well, but the Thinkpads have been taking a shit too often, due to coal dust.

    I can't keep up with technology anymore, especially with how branded and specific things are getting. What's the deal with stuff out there now? Anything new just come out? Anything coming up? Reliability issues? I'm still using a laptop I got over 8 years ago, and although it actually still...

    So my laptop is so god-damned well behaved I just want to pinch its cheeks. This is after I found out the hard drive had been damaged in transit (when Dell sent it to me upon my buying it) and subsequently had it replaced. Curiously, when the guy came around (on-site service :lol: awkward as...

    Got the wife a new windows 7 laptop for her birthday (Asus K55A), upgrading the hard drive to a 7200rpm drive I burnt recovery CD's using the built in AI Recovery software to reload the operating system onto the new drive (probably should have just done Clonezilla but too late now), and it is...

    I use my laptop a lot, and I've always just used the touchpad to navigate around. But, this has starting giving me a few issues in my right hand, such as stiffness and minor pain. Would you guys suggest getting a mouse to use with my laptop? Is there anything specifically designed for just...
