Performance notebook help
Alright, after scouring through pages and pages of notebooks, trying to find the "perfect" one, I need a little bit of help. Here's the rundown:
I'm a musician and I'm trying to slowly build up my own studio over the next few years, starting with a suitable workstation. The primary use will be running a DAW (tentatively FL Studio) and Sibelius 7. Here are the important things I'm looking for:
-i7 processor (min 2.0 GHz)
-8 GB of RAM
-750 GB HDD
-9 cell battery
And while this is mostly for writing, creating, recording, editing, mixing music and making loops/beats, it will also be my main computer (thus a larger screen and Blu-ray capability for watching movies).
I feel like it would be relatively easy to do this if I just built a desktop, but I'd like a laptop for its portability (I don't care if a 17" weighs a ton, I just want the option of working wherever I feel like).
How feasible would it be to, say, buy a recertified notebook from newegg and swap in the parts I need? I'm willing to spend up to 2K to make this happen, and I just can't seem to find a ready-made notebook that fits the bill.
