    Cool What PC or Mac do you have and what are the specs?

    I personally have a PC, an HP dv9540us for all my mixing of sorts. It gets the job done even for a 1.5GHz Core 2 Duo (But at least its a dual core!) and I'll upgrade it to 2.4GHz this summer anyway. Specs:

    Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium x86/Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.2
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo @ 1.5GHz
    Chipset: Northbridge: Intel 965GM, Southbridge ICH8M
    RAM: 2GB (2x1GB) @667MHz
    Graphics Card: nVidia GeForce 8600M GS (overclocked)
    Sound Card: Realtek High Definition Audio
    Wireless: Intel 4965AGN
    LAN: Realtek RTL8168B/8111B Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC
    HDs: 2x120GB@5400RPM
    Extra thing: Fingerprint sensor for using your fingerprint as your password for your windows account, email, and programs
    Ports: 3xUSB, 1xSVGA, 1xHDMI, 1xS-Video, 1xs400 firewire, 1xExpansion Port 3, 1xRJ-45 port, 1xmodem, 1xPCI Unknown (I use it for my media remote), 2xaudio, 1xmic.
    Screen: 17" WSXGA

    Talking funny to put VDJ and Logic in one sentence hehehe...

    well since Logic was bought by Apple in '02 you will find it tricky, actually nearly impossible, to run on a Wintel box.
    there are maybe hacks that could allow to do so but the overhead you would pay defeats the purpose of a stable running DAW.

    But it doesn't need to be Logic, there's always Cubase, Sonar (my fav), Reason (though a bit too self contained, esp audio import, but still possible via ReWire), Live, FL Studio etc.

    my setups are "fairly" old but for the moment absolutely sufficent for what I do.
    well, everything is old today after 6 months innit?!

    cool thread here are my specs of my laptop that I use everyday, I used to game but go out of it, very addicting haha

    MacBook Pro 15"

    • 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    • 2GB memory
    • 200GB hard drive
    • Double-layer SuperDrive
    • NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT with 256MB
    • wifi ABGN
    • FireWire 800 & 400
    • Audio IN Jack

    It does the job for my everyday use such as browsing, email, AH stuff, decoding, encoding etc
    Battery life is really good on this (5hours with wifi on) have been really happy with it, but it does come with a heavy price, but then again 48$/month is not bad

    I don't even know. I just use these computers, I don't pay much attention to their specs.
