RE: Windows laptop recommendation needed

We could perhaps add to this observation of Per's that Michael, in having 
a Sony laptop, may have had better sound processing in there. I had a Vaio 
a while ago and the sound was noticeably better that all other desktop and 
laptop equipment I have had

When it comes to real-time audio processing, DSP, there is also the option 
to use dedicated hardware. That way you do not risk system crashes as when 
over taxing a laptop. I've had two pretty decent boxes like that 
(FireworX, AxeFx II) and the patches I cable up inside them are almost 
identical with what I do in Bidule on a laptop + audio interface.
