    Hi guys,
    This is my first mac, I'm moving my self from pc to mac :)
    I planning to get a Macbook Pro 17" for music editing and recording using pro tools. Not much of recording, most time using on music editing.
    I need some recommendation.
    Should I go for HD or SSD ?
    I heard SSD will cause problem after a while for recording purposes.
    Is that true?

    How complex are your projects going to be? What kind of recording setup do you have? SSDs don't have a fantastic write speed, but unless you're doing crazy multitrack sessions (32+ tracks), you won't be saturating either type of drive anyway.

    Personally if I were in your situation, I'd probably get the traditional drive and sink the savings into a high-quality external drive and an eSATA ExpressCard. Way more bang for your buck, and better-suited to your needs.

    Hi,
    Average one session I use 30+ mono tracks.
    Ok thanks for the recommendation :)
