title says it all really. looked already at the lowest spec Macbook Pro 13" which is going to set me back a fair whack. I'm quite lucky in some respects I know someone with alot of knowledge and shitloads of kit to get me going production wise in his house, so having a Macbook Pro Laptop is essential for getting round to his to really start making something fresh. But my questions are... What do I need for home production? Is it essential to have a monitor screen? I have decent nearfield monitors, would you recommend anything else? Do I need a keyboard? I have absolutely no idea where to start there seems to be a million different keyboards. Is there anything else that is essential to getting me started? Any helpful replies will get fair reppings.
