    Is a macbook pro necessary for this task?

    I plan to buy a macbook or a macbook pro to produce music (running virtual instruments which will eat up tons of RAM and the like) but i also want to connect it to a 24" monitor for more screen space for the audio editing. I have heard from some people that a macbookpro is needed because of the dedicated graphics card to handle rendering all the extra screen space and that a macbook cannot effectively do this. i also need the portability of a laptop

    I dont need the firewire or the extra screen size cuase of teh external monitor.. so all i would be ungrading for is this graphics card. Is it needed?

    Also, i want to pack as much RAM as possible on the computer... is it possible to effectively upgrade higher than the 4GB is says on the apple site?

    Thanks everyone!

    If you want the most RAM possible, then you're going to want to look at the MacBook Pro (max. 8GB) rather than the MacBook (max. 4GB/6GB?).
