does anyone have any experience with the MBP with solid stade drive?
I'm planning to buy a MBP for audio recording; I want something stable and fast which allows me to record at least 16 tracks simultaneously with ease.
So, I saw two models of MBP's, both are 15":
One is a 2.3GHz i7, which I'd upgrade with 8GHz of RAM and a 128GHz SSD,
the other one is a 2.6GHz i7, which I'd only upgrade with a 128GHz SSD.
At this point the two MBP would be the same except for the processor.
What I was wondering is: Do those 0.3GHz CPU make a big difference?
I see and read that those SSD's are lightning fast, which I like
but will I benefit of that speed while I'm recording projects on a ext. drive (USB3.0) and mixing them from that same ext. drive?
I'm using Pro Tools 9 and I've heard that is highly recommended to record audio on an ext. drive. Does it really matter? Can I record on a ext. drive and then put the audio files on the int. SSD to mix the projects?
Thanx in advance
