My desktop PC died and now I'm planning to replace it with a laptop. What laptops work best with FL? Some of the laptop processors seem like they might be underpowered for music production but on the other hand I don't want to have to buy a core 2 duo if an older cpu is acceptable. I saw somewhere on here Gol said FL doesn't really use both cores right now anyways and FL is 32-bit for the forseable future. I imagine a celeron or turion or whatever is too under powered especially with small cache. But do c2d cpus really help that much with FL? I've also been debating getting a Mac since Windows 7 isn't too exciting and Vista was a resource hog. Can FL run on a Mac at all? Logic certainly looks good but I don't want to waste all the time to learn a new DAW just for a somewhat improved OS. Lastly any thing to look for regarding sound, storage, etc? My music hardware is just usb-midi stuff, 88 key controller and an mpd24.
