  1. i'm about to purchase a laptop for running audition 2.0 with a presonus firepod, and have these processor options (1 gb memory, 80 gb hard drive)...

    intel core duo 2 ghz


    intel pentium 4 w/ht 3 ghz

    i've heard good reviews of the dual core processors in the home pc setting (looking at pictures and listening to music at the same time, etc) but nothing about their performance running one piece of demanding software (like audio production software). in my mind, a faster single core processor seems to make more sense for running one intensive program, unless i'm missing something here (can audition split the processing tasks into two cores? isn't that hyper-threading?)

    thank you knowledgable ones...

    Its Windows and Intel, what does that tell you?? It's all fallible. But it can't be good. But it can be bad. I love all this stuff! It's totally random! I like random, don't you??

    a core duo 2.0 will kill anything else intel has including its own 800 or 900 series.

    i would put it on par with AMD X2 4400.
    very impressive for a laptop.

    of course not all laptops are created equal.
    many will not work good for audio
