Processor speed question

    I'm an acoustic musician and I'm going to be recording songs with under 8 tracks. I've seen a very nice laptop (Acer Aspire 9813) which has a Core 2 Duo 1.66 Ghz processor (and 1 Gig Ram).

    My software is Samplitude Pro Version 9, which has a lot of sophisticated reverbs and compressors built in.

    Will the 1.66 handle everything OK, or should I go for a laptop with a faster processor?

    Also, I've been warned about possible incompatability of Acers with firewire soundcards. I'll be using a Focusrite Saffire. Has anyone experienced this sort of problem with Acer?

    I think 1.66Ghz will do fine. I have a dell laptop with intel "solo" 1.7Ghz and 1Gb ram and it works for me.

    I can't help you on the acer firewire thing tough.
