    i started on fruity loops and have worked my way onto reason. although i love reason i think fruity is easier to learn the basics on and get an understanding of how things work... plenty of tutorials on YouTube

    i started too on reason 3 and now I'm using reason 4.
    I definitely recommend reason.
    I used FL in a while and in my opinion it's not so good as reason.

    yeh same man im using reason 4 now, took me like a month to get good at, its all pretty layed out for you. To Be honest i found fruity loops a bit limited in terms of what you can do with the sound. But some ppl can use it quite well like if you reWire it or sumtin.

    Duo Core Processor T7200, 2 GHz - Strongly recommend Windows XP, Vista has given us problems with some applications
    2++ GB RAM
    100+++ GB 7200 rpm Hard Drive
    Separate video Card (not onbord) Helps overall scrolling capabilities performance etc..

    See these links for a good example of a dell. ( you will have to download that image file had no other way of showing it)

    by the way, just noticed you said u was thinking about getting a laptop.... for the same price you could get a desktop pc with alot better specs

    laptops are made for portability not performance
