My girlfriend is heading to college, and she came to me for advice on a laptop. I recommended a Macbook, as she's tight on cash, and wants a Mac (I spoiled her by letting her use mine...). She needs to run music composition software. I think that a Macbook is great, as it will allow her to run a choice of OS if needed. Her graduation present from me is going to be 4 gigs of ram, . I guess I'm asking for a recommendation on a processor.
