What is the cheapest available MacBook Pro I "need" to record acoustic guitar, piano, and vocals with minimal effects?

Asked by mirifique (1511 points ) June 21st, 2012

I’ve decided to invest in a MacBook Pro for music recording – it is a very simple set-up, with a dual-input interface for my guitar, piano, and microphone. I am willing to spend whatever is necessary for the best possible recording quality (as I intend to record my demo using the MBP) but I don’t want to buy more than I need. I am trying to figure out what size, and how much RAM, processor speed, memory, etc. I will not be needing drum loops or anything like that – just laying down organically-recorded tracks and then mixing everything together. Thanks in advance.

Get an audio interface for the input of mikes and instruments to process into MBP. Extra RAM is for video and graphics.

Processing audio is easy compared to video, so pretty much any MB Pro from the last couple of years has more than enough juice to get the job done.

Yep, any sort of Macbook Pro should be powerful enough.
