Halp guys. I know theres a million of these threads around, but you guys are experienced with macs so i feel best trusting you tbh. So, basically. I'm a music production student, so i need to invest in a mac. I need it to be portable, and powerful, which brings me here. I need to use Logic Pro 8 and Pro Tools LE (that may become HD in the future, though i may have a mac pro by then), but im also going to be using the machine for live performance, synth sounds from mainstage and sound manipulation in programs like MAX/MSP. I'm also a fairly avid gamer, probably running most off bootcamp windows, steam being the main requirement. So i'm probably going to be maxing out whatever i get. Current thoughts are that the glossy screen could possibly bum me live with lights flashing all over the place, but id rather not invest in a product that is known to have a defective GFX chip (8600). Personally I love the new MBP in general, aesthetically and power wise as far as i can tell so far just from playing with them in apple shops. This will be my first mac, and i need it to last for at least 5 years. So yeah, guide me oh wise mac lords. Cheers everyone, great forum community.
