Whats up guys, I'm currently in the market for a laptop to run Cubase SX, Reason 3.0, Ableton Live, and SMAARTLive 5 for music creation and live audio work. Since I do audio work on a cruise ship, I unfortunatly can't lug around a desktop. I'm pretty new to this scene so I'm very anxious to start learning Cubase and Reason. I'm more of a "live audio" guy. I'm mainly interested in using soft synths for creating music. (I'm big into the psy trance thing) I will also be using an interface for SMAARTLive as well as an external HDD for my tracks, both I will need to also purchase down the road. Being the gamer junky that I am, I also need a high-end dedicated graphics and sound card. ...And also extra USBs for a corded mouse and other peripherals. 3-4+ USB ports would be good. So, some I've recently taken interest in are the upcoming Sager m570ru and Asus c90s and G2s. I love the upgradability of the c90 and the low cost since you order it barebones and install your own parts. However this thing has 4 huge ass fans on the back and may cause lots of noise. Has anyone had any experience with Sager (Clevo, Alienware) or Asus for their music? Thanks all in advance.
