Laptop Purchase Help Please!

Hi All,

I have Sonar 5 and a very small Behringer mixer, which I used to use to connect to my P.C to do my recordings. My P.C is now broken, and long gone, but I haven’t replaced it, as I want to use a laptop instead of a P.C to run this, and don’t know what to buy.

I know Sonar 5 can be run on a laptop, and just wondered if anyone had any suggestions of a low cost laptop (budget is small)suitable for this. I am not looking for major professional results - that’s not me, I’m a 50 year old amateur that just enjoys this for a hobby.

I haven’t recorded anything now for 18 months, and am really missing it now, and would like to get going again.

I live in the UK and any help or advice anyone can give me would be hugely appreciated.

Thank you!

Hey all

Just joined this site and like the feel of it and the variety oh musicians.

So many talented people I have listened to on here - seems like a great place to be.

I am a majorly amateur musician (and even that is in loose terms) but I love writing and playing music. I do this for “me” but hey if anyone else listens - that’s great - if they enjoy it - wow - maybe I’ve achieved something!

Wishing all musicians good vibes :0)
