    a laptop with i7 processor and alot of ram is the best . graphics card dont really matter but you will need an usb audio interface and splitter usb if you want to add more equipement ( midi-usb keyboard mpd pad mixer ect..).


    and i forgot dont buy acer laptop they break all the time and have a very bad custommer service i bought one and its the worst move i ever did.

    The graphics hardware does matter a little if it is sharing system memory.

    I use a Dell Inspiron I'm not going to look up the model but's it has
    4GIGS of RAM(upgrading it to 8 gigs of RAM in Feb.)
    i3 processor

    it handles FL Studio and third-party plugs fine

    but I would recommend going with at least a i5,with 4gigs of RAM(don't buy a laptop with 8gigs of RAM)
    cheaper to add 4gigs of RAM later yourself or have your local computer store tech do it for you
    I never had problems with Dell laptop
    brought both of mines from Walmart ....yes Walmart

    You need to do the math in order to figure out if it's cheaper to do a DIY upgrade.

    I've had a Acer netbook for about 4 years. The screen may be to small though for efficiency though as it's a netbook. Also I had and HP and the hinges broke.
