Oh well. I tried to make the thread not too focused on the ridiculousness/elitism of Apple...but it slips out. I was merely just trying to humbly show off haha. And thanks dude, I am pumped it should be here within 2 weeks - it is being built/configured this week! Ill post a NCD and try to keep that apple stuff out of there haha.
Well I get a much better workflow when I am running my RME Fireface as the soundcard but I don't have the option to do that all of the time, and the built in sound card blows. Honestly the biggest issue was with HD video editing, and the absolute worst thing IMO is the I/O. I need more I/O and a mbp and iMac just don't cut it for me.
I have done a few re-installs, nothing really improves. Its not that it is a bad laptop and isn't capable of anything, clearly it is a great machine, but just...not great enough for my needs/workflow anymore - that's all.
And thanks man - it appears they locked my thread, haha I thought that might happen. Oh well, maybe I will repost the progress report as just a CUSTOM PC next time.
That's bizarre that your getting issues on your laptop. I honestly haven't tried on my finace's laptop, but I have an Imac that is over 2 years old and can run logic 9/superior and UX2 just fine. Video editing isn't much of an issue, but never done HD.
If you have the time, try to see if reinstalling OSX will fix those issues. But I understand if your already frustrated with it.
Good luck on your new build! It looks like a beast!
