According to Presscave.com, the three highest-rated laptops for music production in 2015 are the Apple MacBook Pro, Sony Vaio Fit series and Dell Inspiron 15. Other highly rated music production laptops include the Asus K55A and HP ProBook.
The factors that make a music production laptop powerful are central processing unit power, random access memory and hard-drive size and quality. Faster CPUs with more cores process data much faster and more accurately, allowing music to be produced more efficiently. Because modern music requires more complex layers and digital effects, having more RAM improves the speed at which music can be processed. Solid state hard-drives also allow faster data access faster, and more hard-drive space allows producers to store more music files.
