Here is my situation. I am definitely buying a laptop for recording purposes and also want to get protools with the digi003. Right now my only option is to buy a new macbook pro (new models were released this week). However, I recently read that protools will be supported by vista sometime this summer. Now I don't know if I should get a vista based laptop or a macbook pro. Also to take into consideration, apples new OS comes out in october, so part of me thinks I should wait until then. I just want to make sure I am spending my money wisely.
