Re: choosing a laptop

... i'm running mobius (2 or 3 tracks stereo) in an atom based netbook, 1GB, 160GB, SP3,
just for fun and see if it could replace the macbook in a crash scenario,
and it works like a charm.
did lots of hard eating memory functions like overdubs, multiplies, etc...

anybody tried lenovo ideapad S10?
very small - expresscard slot - 160 GB harddisk - atom processor 1.6 GB.

I run a a cheap $600 Lenovo (my Vaio died and I didn't have cash for
another sony... but I needed a laptop ASAP, haha). I use a presonus
inspire interface and can run guitar rig 3, some anteres vocal VSTs,
Live, and Reason with some synth and fx all at once with no problems,
using XP SP3. I have no clue what firewire chipset the Lenovo uses

thanks for the response-
just a FYI...after some research i found that this fix is included in SP3-
but maybe sp3 has some nastiness in it...

Huh, I run a Dell Inspiron 9400 duocore 2/2 with a mackie onyx 400F firewire
soundcard and have no problems running loads of vsts, software, hardware

One thing: there is a firewire fix on microsoft that you need to d/l for
optimal action.

after trying 3 computers and having them all give me pops/clicks at 256
buffer....i was informed that the bottleneck is happening because of the
firewire chipset - i now understand that TI is the way to go for
audio....although im still a little confused if the firewire chipset is the
only one you have to make sure is TI..?
im hoping to find out what you guys use - ild like to stay PC and XP pro
all 3 computers i tried were dell....and all turned out to not have the TI
chipset..but ive gotten suggestions to try for Acer and Toshiba (which are
both new to me)
if anyone can give me a specific make/model of a PC laptop that works well
for them via firewire, it would be greatly appreciated

...they were cool in the 80s, then in the 90s we realized they were
naff, now Im supposed to think that they are cool again, in some, "I know
they are naff, but >>Im being ironic"...  kind of a way...
...luckily i was still wearing diapers in the 80's.....everyone ive ever met
who was a teenager during those years has serious problems...especially when
it comes to haircuts -  but atleast they know how to party =D
long live the mullet~!

sorry.. but i think keytar players look a bit silly...

However I will say that I always thought that Hazel O Connor in Breaking
Glass, looked dead hot with that mini synth dangling around her neck... IF
only it was a real synth, and not a made up prop for the film. I also put a
strap on a Gnat Synth (the baby brother of the touch sensitive Wasp), and
leapt about a bit... but that was in th 80s so I think I was still cool...

Concerning interaction with audience/stage presence, I was very much
impressed with Vocal Looper Martin O.
I will write more about him & his approach in detail some time.

Yeah, Keytar... I'd like to get one if I find one cheap anywhere.
