    I remember about 4 years ago, every was talking about Front Side Bus. Nowadays, for music recording, is it still as important? Are the current iMacs good enough to lay down some serious tracks? Thanks!

    Agreed, although generally the answer is 'yes'. The iMacs are very very fast and will handle almost anything you could throw at them...

    For really really big tracks though, a MacPro is more in line. We're talking orchestral size...

    i just recorded about 10 multi tracks at once with zero latency monitoring including a full mic'd drum kit, bass, guitar vox etc etc...on a Macbook.

    you'll be fine.
