This is related to "Mac Users: What Type Do You Use", but I am going deeper in details about your cpu. I am looking at buying a new computer, probably a mac mini or an iMac, but I've been going around about the cpu, so it would be nice to know which are you using and how does it run :).
For Pro Tools users: Do you guys think that pro tools would benefit more from a faster clock speed processor, or more cores? Cause that's a thing I don't decide on yet.. would you take a faster speed dual core -say... 2.7, i7-, or a lower speed but more cores - 2.0, quad core i7- ??
I am curious about mac users, but anyone can answer no matter your OS, since it could help other's in our community.
To kick off, I currently have a MacBook 2009 (white one), 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. 2GB Ram. It doesn't run that well with pro tools, sometimes recording for example 2 tracks, an audio and a midi one, it will stop recording like at 6 minutes of continuos recording.
-I just finished setting up my new computer 2 days ago, its working amazingly well. Its a mac mini server, quad-core i7 2.0, with 2 500GB HDrives-7200rpm, 4Ram. I had a tough time though; I currently use Pro tools 9, don't have the chance of moving to 10 yet, but Lion OS doesn't support it, so I had to perform a "downgrade" to snow leopard, which was very stressful but it all worked out pretty good. Cheers!
