How important is hard drive speed for a studio setup? At this point when I've narrowed down that I want portability so I'm gonna go with either a macbook or a macbook pro. The 17 inch macbook pro is the only notebook that comes with a hard drive at 7200 rpm. Is this so important? Someone told me it was so I was just wondering. I'm starting out running pro tools LE and reason with an Mbox but I may be upgrading my studio in the future.
