hey guys. so I'm looking forward to purchasing a laptop, mainly for office work, but i was wondering if you guys think it would be acceptable (regarding memory, Ram, CPU... etc...) for basic recording purposes as I am not very knowledgeable with the techy side of things. Here are the specs:
Acer Aspire S-3 Ultrabook
Intel Core i3-3217U processor
4GB DDR3 RAM
500GB hard drive + 20GB solid-state drive
My setup right now is very basic but it works:
Bass/Guitar--->line 6 ux1 ---> podfarm---> Riffworks T4
Would latency and clicks/pops really be that different from what i have now? Currently: Intel Core 2 at 2.4 2.2 Ghz. This is i3 at only 1.8ghz. Recording is NOT for professional use, just a hobby.
I've also heard the Podfarm 2.5 is actually very "generous" on CPU usage if that makes any sense.
