  1. Mac Specs Question

    Hmmm ok thanks again guys, although I'm still confused, maybe even more so now. It seems there's no clear answer. Maybe I should find a Mac that is better in all areas. It seems I'm having to choose between which processor might be better here. I feel like if I don't know solidly which is going to perform better, then these machines run the risk of not being powerful enough for what I'm looking for. I need it to be able to record vocals while playing music, and be able to make music and edit it with no lag or skipping. I'm gonna look for an even more powerful Mac. I'll keep you guys updated. Any more info you guys have or whoever feels like sharing, I read all responses and thank you all!
  2. Mac Specs Question

    Odai, thank you for your input. Question guys, is the processor for option 2 stronger than the processor in option 1? I'm confused because the processor in the 1st option is i7 which seems better than the second option which has i5. But the second processor is 3.2 GHz while the 1st option is only 3.1. Flexstyle, thanks for your input. I'm going with pro tools because every studio I've ever gone to to record, they all use pro tools. It's the industry standard and I just want to be able to get on the same page as everyone.
  3. Mac Specs Question

    That was the perfect answer man, thank you. I think I'm all set but if I have any questions I'm gonna come back to this haha. Thanks for the promptness and such well thought out replies, really helped me.
  4. Mac Specs Question

    Jorito, Thank you so much man, this definitely helps. If I can ask a few questions though.. Screen size yes I do take that into account, thanks. Def want a bigger screen. So aside from the screen, basically it comes down to the extra memory, faster hard drive of the 27" vs. the i7 processor of the 21"? So could you break down for me what each of these are important for when it comes to making music? Processor, hard drive and memory. Sorry I'm clueless
  5. Hi all, thanks in advance to any help I get here, so appreciated. I'm going to be purchasing a Mac. I have 2 options and I'm just very unfamiliar with computer specs and was hoping I could get some help. The first Mac has these specs: 21.5-inch iMac 3.1GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 -8 GB Memory -1 TB Hard Drive -NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M graphics processor with 1GB of GDDR5 memory My second option: 27 inch iMac 3.2 GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 -16 GB Memory -1 TB Fusion Drive -NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M graphics processor with 1 GB of GDDR5 memory My main focus is going to be recording and producing hip hop. I use programs like FL Studio (although likely switching to pro tools), Battery 4, Nectar Production Suite, Nexus, Massive. Use an Audiobox for my amp and different condenser mics. Basically I have to be able to make music with no lag/skipping. That's the main reason why I'm getting a new computer. The first Mac is cheaper by a significant amount, and I'm wondering if these specs are good enough to make music super smooth with no lag and no problems, no matter how many programs are open/ I'm using simultaneously. The second one is more expensive, but if I'm going to have even slight problems with the first option I'll dish out the money for the second one. Thank you so much, and if anyone feels like going over any of this stuff in detail feel free, I'd appreciate that. Like difference between a normal hard drive and Fusion Drive? Difference between graphics processors? Only 5M, is that a lot? I'm nooby with this stuff.
