Well, basically I was just curious as to current thoughts on what I should be looking for. Logic is my software of choice, and I have owned a macbook pro for the last year now. While it has served me well, I am going to sell it because I have realized that I dont have any need for portability, and a 15inch screen isnt doing me any good.
I have encountered limitations with my current system occasionally when working on particularly intense projects. In your experiences, I am wondering what the limiting factor tends to be when working with large sample libraries (kontakt 3 is my plugin btw) and plenty of tracks? I am under the impression that the 4GB memory limitation on my current laptop is currently a rather large factor... go figure that less than a month ago they released a new line of MBPs with an 8GB capacity.
Anyway, thoughts on an iMac? I suppose I am really just wondering what it is that makes a mac pro worthwhile, with it's ridiculous spec capabilities. What would a project have to look like in order to truly requires that sort of power?
Also, uh... since the off topic forum seems to be out of commission, I wanted to ask if there were other forums like this that cover the same topic which people frequented and would like to recommend.
