I have had a rather disastrous time recently with the new G5 dual processor PowerMacs (Quads) and have had to send back two with logic board problems. I decided not to go for a third!
While waiting for the new intel line of powermacs to arrive I am considering a MacBook Pro. Can someone tell me if this machine is up to handling - fairly comfortably - orchestral samples (e.g. GPO, JABB, East West Gold). Programs I use are Sibelius, Nuendo, Protools. Is the 2 gig memory maximum a severe restriction compared to PowerMacs?
I am currently having to use a G4 PowerBook 1.67 Ghz with 1.5 gig RAM. This definitely is NOT up to the task!
Any suggestions would be warmly appreciated. I intend to stick with the Mac platform, having been happy with it for 15 years!
