Macbook pro 5,1 (Late 2008) upgraded with 8go ram and SSD, still working like a charm today (if you exept the crappy batterie).

Re: Which laptop(s) are you using?

a $200 walmart black Friday Compaq that I upgraded with an extra 4gigs of RAM. Its a slow piece of junk, but after 5 years of being on almost constantly, being yanked to the ground by my kids at least a dozen times, and slammed onto the ground by wife (busting the screen), it still works, so I guess I can't complain.

Anybody can be good at something but it takes real effort to suck as bad as I do.

thats pretty good. if the CPU is a 6500u then you can get alot better, but also, CPUs are ridiculously powerful these days. that thing can get to 3ghz with 15 watts and those ghz are faster than older processors (think of it as if the CPU uses it's speed more wisely). the 35 and 45 watt ones are just like, jesus fuck man.

otherwise, 16 gigs of ram is great, 256gb ssd is always nice, and the 930m is overkill unless you game.

That's a good spec, should serve you well for some time to come other than storage.

Re: Which laptop(s) are you using?

a really old toshiba satellite. i donwgraded since i didnt really need my monster machine. i will probably get a newer laptop sometime in the future but this rig still works. i kinda doubt i can upgrade the ram tho, which would give it a lot of additional performance.

edit: googled it, it may be upgradable! neat. will leave 800 MB of ram hanging in the air then (with 4 gigs instead of the 2 i have now) since i just set up win 7 32-bit on it, but whatevs.

edit2: holy shit, that thing cost 1850 euros at the time oO (2008)

Re: Which laptop(s) are you using?

So I threw a huge party in Buenos Aires, we're talking Project X style 300 people 2x 6000 watt speakers. It was fucking fantastic, gave my english mates sets, played with my Argentine record label. Then I realised that at 9AM the next day the friend I organised it with had given me his laptop and I had nooooooo idea where it was. Now I have my Dad's 2009 shitty MB pro, although I do also have a 2009 iMac of which I just upgraded the RAM so I guess I'm chilling

Re: Which laptop(s) are you using?

Just got a Dell XPS 13 (9360). It's basically a 13" Macbook that didn't cost quite as much and still has a USB-A port. And runs Windows and Linux instead of OSX, so no Logic or anything, but it's a solid little workhorse so far. i5 and 8GB, m.2 SSD. It's not quite as powerful as I've had in the past, but the fact that it's tiny and light and decently inexpensive makes it a fair trade off.

Re: Which laptop(s) are you using?

I didnt realise my system was so old until recently... It's a an i5 quad core from around 2008-2011... 6 gb ram. The battery is broken but i will fix that. All else works.
