    Hi, I do voiceovers from my desktop using Cool Edit Pro or Adobe Audition, a Eurorak mixer & various mics. I would like to purchase a laptop in order to be able to record when i am away from home - carrying the Eurorak & mic with me, of course.
    Does anyone have any advice regarding the type of laptop that would have a soundcard good enough for voiceover recording without having to buy an external professional soundcard? What is the quality of the Apple laptops in this regard?
    Any advice would be most welcome!

    apples are going to have better sound cards than a pc to start with but you'll have to get a sound card either way to setup the mic. you'll need something w/ a usb / firewire interface so that it can run on that power.

    something like a tascam us-122 would be fine for sound card & pretty much any laptop that is 1Ghz or over w/ minimum 512 ram would suit nicely.
