hi all,

i saw this machine for 1750€ new.
it has an amd athlon 1,5Ghz processor, 512Mb ram (siemens), 40Gb HD (toshiba), cd-rw/dvd, 15" screen, windows XP and other software, 2 year warranty, the usual slots/connexions/modem...

i have to know tuesday night if this machine is ok to run LIVE. is it cheap? is it well built? ...

a friend in financial distress offered me his 500Mhz iBook, 256 Mb for 1100€, but the screen is so small, and i'll have to get some extra memory for this machine. i have a b/w G3 450Mhz at home, but buying a windows machine doesn't frighten me that much :twisted:

thanks for your input, guys!
remember, i have to know really soon.

seems this machine is not that good and not that cheap as well for what it has to offer.

too bad... got a bit excited.

borg.. going the pc route is a good idea for now... just sold my mac and have a gateway pc laptop on the way... cant wait to try it out with a emi 2/6 with low latency...

Which Gateway did you get - I have been looking into them (the 450 & 600 series) and would very much like to hear what your experience will be like. Feel free to private message me.

a friend of mine can't seem to make his new gateway 600 run right HIGH LATENCY. i saw a guy with an off brand pc laptop smoke his.

High latency with regards to audio or midi? Internal sound or usb audio?

Using the internal soundcard is not a viable option, but if he was getting high latency using a USB audio device, that would be a cause for concern.
