Recording studio help size ect..
I'm looking at a early 2011 8,1 icore5(dual)I think 2.3ghZ 4gb/13333mhz ddr3x lion that's all I know. Will it work for home recording studio???
Is this a good question?
It's pretty much an entry level machine. Plus there are known issues with both the 13" & 15" MBP GPU. It took a class action law suit for Apple to take care of the 15 & 17" models. https://www.apple.com/support/macbookpro...

I'm using an SSD as boot drive with 3 other hard drives. It's much more of a business machine. 27" monitor. I'm using a :
My SSD boot drive actually makes this machine much faster than the standard.
bench speed (32) 21754 Bench speed (64) 24262
Compare that to the 13" MBP 2011 of
bench speed (32) 5883 Bench Speed (64) 6448
