Hardware recommendation for PC user planning to change

    I've been using Cakewalk SONAR on a PC for years. I'm considering jumping to Mac & Logic, but I'm unsure about what hardware to get. The conflict is that I travel a bit, so I'd like to get a MacBook Pro to do a little mixing on the road. But then I worry it might not have the capacity to support several tracks (20 or so with drum tracks), some with multiple takes, software effects, etc.

    So the basic question is: Will a MacBook Pro support Logic with moderate sized projects, or should I just get MacMini or iMac?

    Thanks in advance for your advice and support. I look forward to joining you all in the not too distant future.

    A MacBook Pro would definitely support moderate to large sized Logic projects. You might want to get a second drive for your audio projects but you could use only your system drive if you had to.

    Hi I've used a MacBook Pro (17"/2009) for many years and I don't think you'll have any problems with moderately high track counts regarding the CPU. I would echo the recommendation for a 2nd hard drive though!

    Thanks to you both. That gives me the confidence to move forward.
    That's a good tip on the 2nd drive for audio data (that's how I have my desktop PC set up with a dedicated drive for media), so I should plan for that.
    I was thinking too I should set up a larger screen for when I'm at home.
    Thanks again.
