New Laptop for Cubase 6 - comments requested


Sorry, I posted this previously in the wrong forum…this is hopefully the correct forum (I hope!).

I am in the process of ordering a laptop for running Cubase with main plug-ins being Reaktor, Kontakt, and Stylus RMX.

  1. I am presently considering a Dell XPS 17 and I kindly request comments regarding the specs, see below.
  2. For a reasonable additional price the XPS 17 comes with a touchscreen. Does Cubase support using a touchscreen, e.g. for moving objects around in the main project window and for adjusting the mixer faders? Sorry if this is a dumb question but I would feel silly finding out after purchase that a touchscreen cannot be used with Cubase 6.

Dell XPS 17
Intel Core i7-2670QM processor
Display : 17.3in HD+ WLED True-Life (1600x900)
RAM: 8192MB (2x4096) 1333MHz DDR3 Dual Channel
Hard Drive : 1TB (2x500GB) Serial ATA (7200RPM) Dual HDD (One drive for OS+programs, one drive for data, i.e. Cubase projects and samples)
Graphics : 3GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M Graphics Card
Operating System : Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64 BIT)

Thanks a lot for your comments!
