Re: Best Mac for Logic Pro
Actually, if you won't need a lot of software instruments and plugins, a normal macbook with 2-4 gb ram and 2.1ghz intel core duo is enough. (i had that myself)
RAM and CPU are only needed for a lot VST plugins and that stuff and of course Channel-Inserts (Eq's, Compressors, etc).
I ran logic on my macbook pro with an i7, 8gb ram and 720gb HD but it can't handle to record 16 tracks simultaniously which is a problem of logics internal HD management.
That is the reason why I switched to pro tools 10 - and it works.
(Also I think that Logic is a good software to program/record midi stuff but it's not really made for audio recording.)
You won't of course need a Retina Display as mostly no software is optimized for that display. You will be able to run Logic and all that stuff with a normal display :P
If you're intersted in buying Logic (180€ I think?) you could also spend a little bit more and get an education version of Pro Tools 10 for 250€ ...
Good luck :)
