2020 MacBook Pro for Music Production

  MB20120 14:30 24 May 2020

I start Uni this year on a music production degree and need a new laptop, I want to buy a 2020 MacBook Pro however I’m on a budget, therefore I am looking to get the entry level MacBook with 1.4ghz 8th gen quad core i5 (16gb ram 256gb ssd). Is this going to be enough to power Logic Pro X and run VST plug-ins inside Logic or will I have to opt for the more expensive £1799 MacBook Pro?

Why not consider buying a 2 year old, Second User model... You could get much more power for your money and, at the end of your Degree, in 3 years time, it will still be useable.

The only barrier, that I can see, is a need to impress others but, much more impressive, would be a well-used machine, inferring that you'd been conversant with Music Production for years!
