5400 rpm Hard Drive - Too Slow ?
 
Looking at some Laptops to run Record through but i was told ny someone that the 5400 rpm speed of the hard drive would not be fast enough does anyone know if that is true.....thanks..................

Its fast enough generally but since in Laptops you cannot really have separate disks for OS and samples/audio files you should look for a 7.200 rpm one if you plan to have multichannel audio projects or heavily sample based projects on the internal disk. Or check if you can scrap the optical drive for another disk. Or get one that has the OS on an SSD :)

Couldn't even thought that someone has this kinda speed HD yet! :D

Ok thanks, i won't be buying a laptop then, so will dual core and four or even 8 Gig of Ram in a desktop do the trick....

Easily, if you get an i7 you should be fine for some time :)

i7 ? so do you mean a dual core is not enough..... is i7 a seven core? sorry i am not that clever when it comes to computers, just trying to find out what i need as there is so much on the market it is hard to know what type of processor i should go for, i know faster the better but i have limited funds.....thanks for your help

Intel i7 is the latest generation of Intels desktop processors. Relatively expensive but it has lots of processing reserves especially for DSP-like processing. Each core has a simulated second core that uses the processing power that the main processes do not use. So in the end you see four cores in a dual-core system. If you can't afford it go for an i5, no lower.

Ok i got that but are you saying a quad-core is not really up to it.......................

No? You were saying dual core and I was saying it should cope easily. Reason doesn't really use more than two cores anyway.

Sorry about the confusion so dual or quad will be ok and it's Record i have not reason, thanks again pal for all your help
