Currently I'm recording on my 2007 vintage laptop. It was smokin' fast and powerful in 2007 and I have no issues with performance as far as recording goes with it now -- but it's very loud as it has two internal fans that I cannot turn off. Performance used to be a function of power - and power needs cooling - particularly in laptops. As I look to the future I know that a dedicated PC for recording looming - and I assume that if I want silent that I'll be looking at desktop -- but is this a given? Are there obvious strategies for Silent or quiet PC's that I am overlooking? How have some of you dealt with noisy computers?
