The Best Laptop For Music?

Wanna go mobile with a powerful recording machine? Yes, the best laptop for music production... they do exist but you need to make sure you get the right one. I know them all, good and bad so hear me out. Lots of people are going mobile these days and I did the same thing a while ago... I left my big old desktop computer for a sleek brand new laptop, it was a Mac Powerbook to be exact.


It used to be that if you were serious about recording in your home studio on a computer you pretty much had to go with a tower, or desktop to get enough power to run your audio recording software program. Well, over the last few years some manufactures have really put some effort into getting that same power that was only found on the big towers into their laptops and some of those have even made specialized models specifically for music production.

Now when I talk about the best laptop for music I don't mean one that has a great pair of heavy duty built-in speakers to crank up your mp3's! We are talking about the best laptop for music production so let's take a peak under the hood shall we?

You can't spend $500 on the same computer a school kid does and expect to have a powerful enough recording machine. A typical laptop these days might have something like this:
  • Intel core i3 2.26 GHz processor
  • 4GB of RAM
  • SATA 5400 RPM Hard Drive
  • 14" Display
And almost no external ports other than a few USB ports. Compare those specs to something like the Roc Box Laptop made by PCAudioLabs:
  • Intel Core i5 2.40GHz (520) Processor
  • up to 8GB of RAM
  • SATA2 7200rpm Hard Drive
  • 15.6" Display
And as far as external ports which are very necessary in your studio... 1 eSATA port, 2 Firewire 400 ports, 3 USB ports, 2 channel HD audio with 3D stereo enhanced sound system.

The most important differences here are very key things that you'll notice when recording...

Slightly faster processor, double the RAM (this is huge), the Hard Drive speed of 7200 is mandatory for most recording software programs, and of course the extra ports, most importantly Firewire. The PCAudioLab Rok Box Mobile Laptop HD Computer rivals some of the Rok Box desktop models which were also designed specifically with music production in mind.
