I was wondering if anyone has had success or trouble multitracking onto laptops...

I'm afraid if I go out and grad a pretty nifty laptop that I will suffer horrible latency and problems actually mixing the music...(laggy / horrible performance)

I'm thinking a 2.0+ghz core 2 duo
2 gigs of ram

And can I record directly onto an external hd? too much latency?

Any advice?

I am using a Macbook with 2.0 ghz core 2 duo w/
2 gigs of ram. I am recording 8 tracks EASY. However the macbook has only 1 firewire port so if you are using a firewire soundcard (i'm using the saffire 26) it is not possible to write to a HD. In my case i have tied a firewire hub but that did not work, i tried daisychaining the external HD to the saffire but got clicks and pops. Get the MacBook Pro. I realize it is very expensive but....
