Hey, I'm on the verge of buying the new 17 inch MBP with the intention of buying an MBox Pro (and the PT LE that comes with it). I want to maximize the efficiency of everything i get.. this will include an external hard drive and anything else that i may need. i live in nashville and i'm going to be taking the producer/audio engineer route and what the best personal system i can get to do professional editing on my comp. any suggestions on the specifications of the MBP? Should i go for the SSD? and which options should i select? Also, should I do the Mbox Pro with the PT LE? or maybe something else... i know i need pro tools though, it's the industry standard in country music (would PT HD be overkill??) Also, what external hard drive should i get? is there anything i need to buy that i'm leaving out??? Any information would be great. I've had a very basic firefox, cubase le setup at home for a while but that's nothing compared to what i'm about to try to do. Any suggestions and rules of thumb would really help me out.. I know this is a pretty loaded post... thanks!!
