I was just wondering if anyone has a successful DAW running on a Vista based system. I'm a decently happy Macbook Pro user, but I've been set back by some major problems running a Digi 003 with my Macbook Pro, and unfortunately the problems are with the Macbook Pro's processor. I was speaking with a friend the other day about his custom built Vista desktop, and what he paid for firepower versus what I paid made me chuckle a bit. Granted, I know there are several price factors in play, like my computer being a notebook, being made by apple, and just about a year old, but I am familiar with windows systems (I had been running XP up until last year) and I know if you treat them right, they will run as smoothly as a Mac. If I can get a spectacular DAW for around $1500 with a Vista custom build, versus a decent DAW from Apple for $2500, barring that the former can run what I need, I would much rather go for the custom desktop build.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read my post!
