Nice one Sir!. Funniest shit I have read on here in a while.

Almost as good as "Making trance music is like banging fat chicks. It is only fun until your friends find out" or something like that.

"Blinkered mac fanboy" isn't an insult? And you are stereotyping Mac users. I am gay however and hate those pesky turtlenecks...they get in the way of a good swallow.

And how am I getting personal when YOU post YOUR computer specs here? And you are the one with the inside Apple information as to when the quad core i7's for Mac coming. You made it personal, you just don't like it when someone calls you out on it.

And this thread has become an annoying Mac vs. PC debate which wasn't the point and completely unhelpful to the original post.

@leedsquietman: Since you have so much foresight, why didn't YOU wait until the quad core systems appeared on your precious plastic Windoze machines?
how is this not personal ?

I never claimed to know when Apple are bringing quad core i7s to MBP, only that it shouldn't be too long (they usually compete well with PC manufacturers), and that the Imac already has this technology. Twist this any way you want. I don't have anything against gay people or turtle neck sweaters.

Enough of this thread for me - you make one suggestion (basically hold on a while) and people get into personal insults. I thought people participating on the forum were more tolerant, understanding and intelligent than to try and gang rape someone for stating an alternative but objective opinion, but I should realize that some people just live for the trolling.

It has firewire too (albeit the weaker ricoh chipset).

I googled this in 5 seconds. There are options.
the i5 is dual-core.

personally if i have to choose between running a ridiculous number of tracks and plugs or having decent battery life on a laptop, i'll go with better battery life.

:lol: @ leedsquietman!
This is why people got all bent in this thread, you argue with false or misleading information after throwing the first insult when people gave your their reasons for not waiting.
leedsquietman wrote:Of course, I wouldn't expect some blinkered fanboy to acknowledge their machine is under powered and to advocate a little patience - the quad cores and six cores etc will be coming,

So cut with the whole being picked on routine, you started bad mouthing people in this thread first, period.
Your quote where you were 'maliciously attacked for being a windows user' came after you started calling people blinkered fanboys.
Seriously, stick with being relatively reasonable, when you try to tough up your posts it just doesn't work like it does for loopstation or dum, just a suggestion.

No, it's a desktop processor in the iMac. That's why no laptops other than ones using desktop processors have them either. They all max about 1.7GHz for PROPER laptop quad cores.

I think I've used my battery a total of 3 times since I bought my laptop a year ago. Do you play a lot of shows where you don't have power?

Wrong. Sorry! Give me a link if it's really true! That's the turbo boost speed as far as google told me, and it's only 1.6GHz per core if using it multicore (which you would using ableton). I'd like to be wrong, but as said above, there is no such quad-core notebook processor running at that speed. Lots of marketing people are c**ts and tell you the turbo boost max speed when only using a single core! Don't fall for it!

And these Quadcore I7 are known to overheat a lot (i've seen HP, DELL and TOSHIBA with these CPU and it's really annoying how noisy they are when working intensively in LIVE), and this issue make really noisy Laptop, and i'm sure that's the reason why Apple didn't put them in their macbook pro.
Apple are known to make very silent laptop and i'm sure they don't want to compromise on that..

This is a good point. My Dell i7 laptop, when I was installing Ableton on it, was actually rather noisy. Since then however, it's been reasonably quiet, especially since I use a laptop cooler. This mostly overrides the need for the inbuilt fans to switch on, at least at the fastest/noisiest levels.
