Hello, it seems I might be looking at migrating to a mobile setup. Based on what I am reading, it seems Cubase is optimized to work on Windows better than a Mac OS platform. Just wondering if there are people who are keeping some sort of really well maintained list of consumer laptops and experiences with Cubase on the market that are better for music production. Based on other research about the VSTs I use, it also seems a good idea to go i7 and more RAM (duh!).
So am wondering would a crappy gaming laptop be an ideal choice? By crappy I mean, a laptop targeted for gamers but which does not have the best dedicated graphics card in it but does have a powerful current generation i7 processor and 16GM ram? My understanding is music applications and VST’s don’t take advantage of GPU memory or GPU processing very much – they are designed to take advantage of regular onboard CPU and RAM.
Please let me know if anyone has thoughts.
