Music can be made with lesser machine. Your laptop has more power than mine, but it limits you to using an external usb sound "card". Laptops with a firewire port or a pc-card port would support more kinds of external audio i/o device.
You really wouldn't want to use the built in audio in any consumer laptop.

So, Just purchase a External USB Sound Card and it should be a good laptop for my needs? Also, I was told that I should probably purchase an External HardDrive as well... Is that true in your opinion?
