I want to do home recording again for fun. The last time I did it I had a laptop with dual boot of Windows XP with Firewire so other than a mixer and monitors I'm starting over. Per some recommendations here I think I'll try Reaper (did Sonar before but forgot what little I learned). What would be a good laptop or PC to get? I use to know computer specs when I built a couple before but it was at back with Windows ME. Suggestions? I'm lookin at maybe a grand as far a budget unless that is unrealistic. This is for a hobby, not professional grade. BTW, I'm not a Mac person. Just never really used them..
