Macbook Pro for Music
I have a 2010 MBP (non-retina) and am thinking about upgrading this summer when the student discounts start (I am in college) to a 13' rMBP. My current comp is ok for many tasks, but for music I feel that I need something more powerful. I have 2 main questions:
1) Should I wait for skylake? I currently have 4gb ram, 5400 rmp HD, and 2.4 core2 duo. I need better specs, but if skylake will be significantly better than the current gen, I may consider it.
2) If I were to buy the current gen, what would be recommended specs? I would be able to spend about $1500-1700, so I was wondering if a ram increase from 8 to 16 or a slightly better processor would be highly recommended (keeping in mind I do get educ pricing).
For my music, I use a lot of electronics which tends to mean that I have many tracks running at once. Also, I plan on getting Logic X and programs such as Omnisphere and other external plug-ins, up from Logic 9 (which I currently use).
Thanks a lot!
