What is the best laptop for music production?
In my video of july about laptops for music production, someone pointed out in the comments (and thank you for that), that
the dell XPS laptops suffer from latency issues.
Which makes them horrible computers for music production

[2]
the video: computer for music production: pretty general
this video: zoom in on laptops and, what to look out for, brands, and name 5 new models for music production

[3]
lets dive into it


[BUMPER]


SCENE 5
Not interested in advice, only the 5 models of laptops that I would recommend. skip to the end of the video.

SCENE 4
So who I am I to say that?
Have have a degree in software engineering, worked in a computer store for 10 years and my friend owns a computerstore and I consulted him for this video

SCENE 7
levels: budget, mid range, professional (this video), absurd expensive

VOICE OVER 1
Recommendations specs

SCENE 8
-i7 processor, maybe i9 with at least 4 cores
AMD or Intel processor. AMD problems with midi controllers and NO Thunderbolt

SCENE 9
-16 gb ram, 8gb bare minimum. can’t add memory in a lot of laptops

SCENE 10
-hard drive:
important is that you look at the speed of your hard drive. 5400 RPM can be too slow to read multiple tracks ‘at once’ from your hard drive. choose 7200 rpm or better SSD

SCENE 11
Ssd good for battery life
256 gb ssd is far too little. 500gb bare minimum, 1tb is even on the low side.
You will run out of hd space sooner or later. Not a question if but when.
With 256 gb probably after installing your daw and sample packs.

SCENE 12
Yes they are expensive

SCENE 13
-17 inch scherm, 15 inch absolute minimum

SCENE 14
-external monitor connection (save on 17” monitor)

SCENE 15
-backlit keyboard

SCENE 16
-usb -> apple macbooks usb-c

SCENE 17
-thunderbolt for external sound card (no AMD)

SCENE 18
-side scrolling mouse or a Apple Magic Mouse


SCENE 20
Whitelist : built to last
These computers are built to last
Hp elitebook series
Microsoft surface
Toshiba
Asus
Dell Alienware
Macbook pro series

SCENE 21
if offer Extended warrenty: buy it!

SCENE 22
There is a reason why they are so expensive. More quality components like hinges, motherboard.
After something is broken after 3 years, they can probably fix it

SCENE 23
Black list music production
These computers are built to be cheap and not to last any longer then the term of warrenty
Msi
Acer
Lenovo
samsung
Medion

Dell XPS and Insperion series laptops
Chromebook

SCENE 24
Gamer laptops suited for heavy workload, but "bad" for one reason: you pay for heavy graphics card you dont use

SCENE 25
Bare in mind: cant upgrade components. Maybe memory but thats it.


SCENE 26
The 5 models that are suited for for music production
Model 1

SCENE 27
Model 2

SCENE 28
Model 3

SCENE 29
Model 4

SCENE 30
Model 5
