you definitely dont want a desktop for live shows. do you ever fly to gigs? does your luggage ever get lost? i doubt you'd have the desktop Tower in your carry-on luggage, so these are things to consider. i can fit 2 mac powerbooks, an Evolution UC-33, an Edirol UM-1, cables, a book full of backup i...
