Re: mac-cetera...

Hi Andy,
The "2008" white Apple Macbook with 2.4 GHz ( Dual-Core ) + 4Gb ram
should already be enough for Logic 8 or 9 + some soft synths and
Mobius. Regarding audio and midi interfaces, I can recommend the Motu
Ultralite mk3 which does all you need (have it myself). Mobius + a
flexible audio interface like the Motu can do everything the rc-50 can
plus a lot more, you can't really compare them.

> How much RAM and speed do I need and how much is superfluous?

I installed the maximum amount which is 4 Gb. Tip: buy cheap Kingston
memory chips, Apple chips are very expensive.

Firewire is good, I don't have experience with USB2 interfaces but
Motu offers models with either Firewire or USB2 for the same price.
both have been tested well by known magazines like Sound On Sound.
