The Best Laptops for Music Production in 2016
The evolution of music production has gone hand-in-hand with that of modern technology, in that its advancements have also made it possible to create, develop, and improve music from having to be done in a recording studio with bulky equipment, into virtually anywhere, especially since one can put such technology onto a portable piece of equipment like a notebook.
Using a laptop for music production needs a couple of elements, especially with regards to having a fast processor, considering the software that will be used to conduct the actual work, like recording, editing, and mixing. It is also suggested that the processor should not only be fast, but also able to multi-task, given the workload. Considering the software demands, one should be getting a notebook with at least 8GB RAM. As for storage, solid state drives offer faster transfer speeds compared to HDDs, although storage space is smaller.
Of course, for some who actually conduct mixing in places like clubs and bars that don’t necessarily have the prerequisite lighting, a backlit keyboard may come in handy.
Here are three good laptops that can best handle music production, according to I/O Techie:
MacBook Pro 15.4. For those who take music production very seriously, MacBooks are their preferred weapon of choice, given its power and reliability. In addition, there are software within the macOS sphere that can handle music recording and editing quite well.
Acer Aspire v15 Nitro Laptop. This notebook uses an Intel Core i7-4720HQ processor that runs at 2.6GHz, alongside an NVIDIA GeForce GTX860M graphics card.
Dell XPS13 Ultrabook. This notebook uses an Intel Core i5-5200U that runs at 2.2GHz and could go up to 2.7GHz. It also uses the first infinity display of 13.3-inch Full HD at 1920 x 1080 resolution.
