Hey all-
I am seeking advice for a laptop purchase. I record and mix my own music using the Acid program. The laptops I have been using have integrated sound cards and can not handle the input. Does anyone have any advice on a good brand of laptop that has an un-integrated sound card? My price range is $600.00- $900.00 if at all possible. I have checked some of the better known laptop sites and can not seem to find anything. Many have the option of an un-integrated Graphics card, but either I am dumb, but I don't see options for the sound. One important factor- an external sound card is not an option at this time.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and take care, chillykim :thumbsup:

You might want to look at an external soundcard to plug into the laptop.

You will also be able to keep your existing laptop going this option.

May I ask what inputs you need?
