Hey everyone new to these forums and i have a bit of a query involving my new macbook. Its an odd situation but i have just come out of a audio and music technology course and i have also been producing sort of freelance for 3 years whilst doing my course and i have gained some knoledge but one area i havent really researched and that is the macbook requirements i need. I am now starting a course at "Alchemea" and i recieve a free macbook 2.0Ghz with 1 gig of ram and a 80 gig hardrive. obviously the space is an issue and i will be getting an external seagate drive but what about the specs are they enough for what i want to do which is; audio recording and editing in "pro tools" and logic pro 7. i will be running many tracks on each program and i will be looking to add opther applications over time including Reason and Live. Primearily i want to make sure my prgrams run smoothely and with many plug ins as possible as i am an avid producer of all types of music. The main questions i pose are: 1. Should i simply upgrade the RAM in the one i recieve and get a external hard-drive. 2. Or should i sell the lower spec mac off for roughly £650 and simply pay the idfference on a higher spec model? Really i would prefer to do option one but let me know what you guys think, thanks alot for your help, any would be appreciated.
