As a beginner, choosing the right laptop for your music production needs should not be too difficult but it is definitely a critical decision. We can’t tell you how many hours we’ve spent researching computers, laptops and the works when it comes to finding the perfect rig to make some tunes on (and have purchased multiple times for ourselves personally). You will be looking for a laptop that has the ability to record as well as produce music, in addition to one that will give you service for several years to come (as with all music gear for beginners). Software, sounds and effects nowadays are pretty demanding. This is going to be an investment, considering laptops aren’t the cheapest part of your musical set up by far. Also, if you are the type to move around a lot, it would be prudent not to choose a bulky laptop since carrying it around will definitely be a tiresome task, but we’ll leave that up to you.
