Buying a Laptop

Hi guys,
I’m looking to buy a laptop for use to REcord and run backing tracks (multiple outputs via audio interface) and maybe live synth/controllers…

I know most people will say get a mac book pro but wanted to know if anyone out there and any windows based laptops i should consider…
I’ve been trying to research but its a mine fields
Basically was thinking about the HP models
HP Evvy
HP Pavilion dv7
HP Elitebook
but am open to suggestions
budget about £800-£1000


Apart from that this belongs into the hardware forum , where btw. you can find a thread about recommended Laptop models already. It might be useful for people to know your interface, so they can advise laptops with the correct ports…
