I'm currently running Pro Tools 8 on an six year old Dell laptop with 2gb ram. Which basically sucks.
So basically I want to get a new laptop or PC with a £600 budget. Preferably not a mac as i'm used to windows and a lot of the software is compatible for pc. Though if it's the most sensible option I won't mind switching.
The problem is I am currently saving to an external firewire hard drive, so will need a firewire port. However it looks like this has gone completely out of fashion. Are there any laptops out there which would still support this or maybe it would be more worthwhile just getting a new external hard drive.
Would basically any new laptop with 8gb ram be appropriate for running pro tools 8?
