    It’s the legendary Question but which is better?

    I own a mobile recording studio mainly used for recording live gigs.

    At the moment I have a Presonus FP10 and an old Mesh laptop recently the mesh has died and am looking towards getting a new one.

    What should I go for... Mac or Pc? Which is better for recording??

    Thanks in advance...

    Considering that both are intels now, If u are looking laptop, get a mac. A similarly spec'd windows laptop will cost more. And a mac can run windows. However, consider that a macbook will not have an expansion slot. A macbook pro will.

    If looking to go desktop, i would prefer a windows machine. Much cheaper, and if configured well, runs fantastic. Unless ofcource u run mac based applets.

    Depends on what software you want to use.

    I own both platforms, but the apps I prefer to use for audio and video are Mac only.

    I personally find macs to be far better tools for recording. but it is all preference.

    I dunno about that. My preferred tools for recording involve a mixer, a bunch of cables, guitars, mics, etc....

    I plug it into the PC though, with various stupid configurations of XP and VM's running obscure badly-installed versions of Linux on it.
