      that seems pretty ****in cool, and surprisingly cheap, a higher end laptop is at least 900+, plus recording software which is alot, plus high end amps are pretty expensive too
      Good idea, but as a computer enthusiast as well, I'm wondering how easy this is going to be to modify? i.e. add a secondary graphics card, add more storage capacity, etc.? That, and it just doesn't seem practical to bring your computer to your gig on account of the fact that it immediately becomes a much more alluring steal
      i wonder if this is gonna be done in partnership with apple hrhrhrh. seriously tho, using unbalanced 1/4 inch guitar inputs into ur computer sucks. it creates too much noise.
      Haha! F*ck you Apple! If there's the chance to try one of these before i buy it then i might scrap my plans to pay for an overpriced Mac with Logic on it and get this instead! Hell yeah!
