So I was thinking about how I would be able to play guitar in my dorm room when I start uni in a year. I can't really play my Carvin V3m without making my fellow students mad. I was just looking for options, and I stumbled upon the Line6 POD HD.

So, with this unit would I be able to plug into a laptop and practice using the variety of amps and effects? How exactly does this work?
I'll pretend I can mod your amp but break it instead.

It's a modelling processor that imitates the sound of amps, effects and speakers/cabs. Plug it into any full-range system (a stereo, computer speakers, headphones, anything that accepts line-level input) and you can play guitar through it. That's the gist of it.

EDIT: I don't know about the different versions of the PODs, but some modelling units can be plugged into a pc through USB/Firewire/etc. if I'm not mistaken.

It sounds like this would be great for a dorm then

No laptop is required at all. Everything is already in the pedal but you can hook it up to the computer and edit your patches in a program rather than on the pedal. You can hear your tone changes in real time too.

I got one of these the other day and it's awesome.

it's a great idea for silent practicing. another option would be to buy a used pod xt/x3. they dont sound quite as good as the hd's, but they can still sound great in their own way. you can find them a lot cheaper than the hds. although, if you're willing to spend the money on an hd, go for it. they sound really good

I second the pot xt/x3 they are still really good models and fx, but way cheaper. If your looking for a floor version look at the Floor POD+ it will save you some cash.
