That pretty much sums it up! I use a PC, an iPad and a a Pi with a custom Linux version for audio (Patchbox OS) for the reasons given.audiojunkie wrote: ↑Thu Oct 21, 2021 8:28 amIt's up to you. Mac, Windows, Linux, or iPad are all legitimate operating systems for making music on these days. Each OS has its pros and cons. Macs are expensive and very proprietary (You get what you get, and don't throw a fit), but they are easy and just plain work. Windows is for generalists--most of the software is here and the operating system is functional, but not very flexible. Linux is for those who like the added efficiency, configurability and flexibility at the cost of a bit more learning curve. You can pretty much have everything exactly how you want it. iPads are for those who want to be extremely mobile. All have sufficient software and support to have a pro set up.
Only reason I use PC over MAC is I like to just buy a case and build my own PC that works for audio...cheaper and more suited to what I need plus I can just update/fix the parts as required.
If I was making music on a laptop exclusively I would definitely consider a Macbook.
