Core duo laptop for Native

Postby Matthijs Ruijter » Tue Mar 19, 2013 23:45

Hi all,

I am looking for a laptop to run Pyramix Native, version 7 / 8. For now I want it to be able to playback and edit 16 tracks of 96/24 with few plugins. In the near future it would be nice to be able to record similar projects with it.

Given my budget limitations I am looking for second hand laptops. I now have the opportunity to buy a Dell 1735 with a core duo T9300 2,5 GHz processor, running Windows 7 Pro. It has all the peripherals I could possibly desire: eSata, FireWire, Express Card slot.

My questions are: does anyone of you run a current Pyramix version on a laptop like this? Would it be able to handle the kind of projects I mentioned? My most important condition is a (more or less) direct responding fade editor when changing fades / playing back fades.

Thanks in advance for your replies,

Matthijs Ruijter

Hi Matthijs,

The Asus laptops we have that are about 4 or 5 years old now are similar spec, & they work fine even for twice that many tracks @ 2FS. Finding the one you have with all that good I/O is also valuable, fewer & fewer notebooks are appearing these days with eSata & express card slots. We run these systems on Win 7x64 Pro w/8GB RAM.

Best wishes & please say hi to both Everett and L J.

Thanks for the info Tim. Actually I am not a member of the Polyhymnia team anymore, just changed my details here... but I'll send your regards to Everett anyway :-)
