PC AudioLabs verses Apple MacBook Pro

Postby draudio2u » Mon Sep 17, 2018 23:28

Hello,
Building a new remote laptop and am down to two options:
PC AudioLabs MC7s or new Apple MacBookPro running in Bootcamp (probably will never see Apple OS boot).
My main concern is third party driver conflicts that steel CPU even if just for a moment. Dennis and I discovered reason my current rig could not run Ravenna successfully is because the third party trackpad/mouse driver would spike the CPU every 8 minutes or so causing failure with Ravenna. This computer should have been find being a Dell Precision 4600 workstation, but no means of fixing this issue as I have the latest drivers installed and can't work without trackpad and mouse. This has kept me from moving from RME UFX+ interface to the Hapi.

So before I pull the trigger, anyone have experience they want to share? Thank you.

I’ve recently bought a 2015 15 inch MBP recommended on the Merging list - once the tweaks were done and the card-reader removed from the configuration, it ran with no spikes and very low latency. My previous 2015 13 inch MBP was fine with Windows 8.1, but I couldn’t get it 100% stable with Win10 (99.9%, even with the tweaks!). Recording onto a Thunderbolt LaCie or USB3 SSD.

I don’t know about the current MBP machines, but hopefully they are better with no card reader. I’ve also never heard the fan with either machine.

Cheers,
Tom
