I've been looking online at computers to purchase. I use this one generally for life, and a lot of the time end up writing music on it. Specs are:
Windows XP (Media Center Edition)
AMD Athlon 64
1 GB RAM
I use Cakewalk SONAR 4 for sequencing, and EWQLSO Gold as my primary library.
I've been looking at Macs since they're rumored to be better machines for media creation (don't argue here, let's just assume it's true for the topic, then fight about it later).
Money is not an issue. Well, much. I'm not going to spend $15,000 on a computer or anything. But I'm willing to spend a decent amount on a really good, powerful Mac so it won't need to be upgraded/replaced later on.
What would be good systems to look at, especially for composers and recorders? I'll eventually be running EWQLSO Platinum + XP, as well as doing recordings of others, and large amounts of mixing, so it'll take quite a bit of power.
Also, which is the better choice; Desktops, laptops, or iMacs?
