hi there, well im studying in japan for a whole year starting in the fall and i plan on bringing my bass. i also decided i wanted to learn to record and mess around with mixing music and stuff so i decided to get an mbox2 and im of course getting a laptop before i go as well. question is any laptop recommendations out there? im going to go for a PC based laptop because im more comfortable with that format and im also going to be using the laptop for school purposes and maybe i might even use it for gaming as well. also i plan on getting an external hard drive since i heard its good to dedicate a hard drive to recording purposes so does anyone know a good portable external hard drive that is very slim and light weight?
