Wondering what type of laptop to get for your setup?
The standard is the MacBook Pro 15″ 2.0 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor. These machines are quite expensive and if cost is not an issue then this is a great laptop for your setup. However, if cost is an issue and you want to stay with a Mac there are previous versions of the MacBook that can be used.
Another less expensive option is using a Windows PC. These machines are just as powerful and will give you great performance. What is important is to get a laptop that will have processing power to get the job done. For example, Dell has a couple with Pentium Core i3 and Core i5 PC’s that will do just fine.
