Hi i'm planning on getting a new laptop in the summer and I want to make some demos with my bass maybe a guitar and some other instuments. I'm looking at the new sony nv series and the new 700 mhz ibook I only have $2200 to spend so any ideas which would be better for this purpose. This is not a apple vs windows question. I understand I will have to buy some thing to brige the gap between instrument and computer and ideas I'd prefer some thing usb or firewire. Battery life and weight is not an issue for the computer it just has to be a laptop. Also where can I find out more info on laptop recording. Thanx in advance.
