Default Entry level Macbook

Hello all, I use an Mbox 2 with Pro tools LE (plan to upgrade) to do amatuer home demo's for songwriting purposes. Recently my 8 year old PC died on me and I am looking for a cheap replacement. Really wanna go the Macbook route but don't wanna break the bank on something that will be dedicated solely on basic recording. I am not all that tech savvy so I was hoping someone could provide a little insight into what might be my best bet.

Was looking at this one http://www.ebay.com/ctg/Apple-MacBoo..._refkw=macbook.

Default Re: Entry level Macbook

If you plan on upgrading Pro Tools you are going to want to consider the future, any money you spend on an old computer may end up being wasted.

I'd recommend this:

You'll be happier in the long run, you'll be prepared for future rounds of upgrades, and you'll get more out of the computer in terms of plug-ins and virtual instruments.

Also this might help you out:

If you get the computer and the upgrade at the same time you may qualify for additional discounts, feel free to contact me directly about this.
