Beware that you won't be able to run top of the heap programs on a laptop, since they use up too much memory. Pro Tools is a no-no, 2nd class programs like Cubase, Logic etc may be OK.

That said, OS 10 macbooks are rather popular...

Solution: Don't use programs that hog all your memory. Get a nice laptop; 1GB PC3200+ memory, at least 2GHz processor, and an external hard-drive. Then, to solve the resource issue, use linux recording software. It'll save you money and give you better performance.

A Macbook with 2 gigs of RAM should give you no problems whatsoever unless you end up with 40+ tracks with tons of effects on each. Highly recommended.
