I guess a Celeron-M based laptop would be ok for recording/playing back multiple tracks? I will later dump the project on my newly upgraded desktop for processing and mixing, but I am looking for a "cheap", possibly used, laptop that will work as a multi-track on location as I don't want be draging too much around. It should be able to..: - record/playback 16/24+ tracks of 16-24bit/44-96KHz - basic editing (arranging, clip-editing) Already owning a LaCie 250GB/7200RPM FW400 drive which I plan to use for projects, the on-board drive will only be used for OS and applications. What are the minimum specs I would need for such a task in terms of RAM and CPU (Celeron-M). Would I need to go at least Pentium-M?
