    If you're in the market for a music laptop, and you're ready for a change for the better, you might consider a (ghasp) Apple Powerbook? Rumor has it they are about to get a speed bump!

    Ok, sorry, I had to say it....bring on the flames!

    What are you talking about? Cubase runs on Mac OS X.

    Yes , I do. It is an Acer Aspire 1694WLMI. Pentium M 2.0, 1 Gig Ram.It seems to be as powerful as my main DAW (Pentium4 3.2 Gghz).
    At the moment I am still using the internal soundcard,with the Asio4all driver,but I am contemplating a USB soundcard.
    This is my first Laptop,so I can't offer much in the way of comparison, but so far I have been totally impressed.The wireless facility,is useful for checking the Internet from my Hammock in the Garden,but also makes swapping files between machines Painless.
    I hope this helps.
    regards
