The best laptop for music production focuses on good configuration to handle the rigors of editing audio clips.

Firstly you'd need a good processor, preferably Intel Core i3 or Core i5 but a Core 2 duo would just about suffice at 1.7 to 2 GHz. Your next requirement would be a RAM of at least 4 GB and expandable up to 16 GB, along with high volume HDD to hold all the software, files and clips.
The best notebook for music production includes a DVD drive along with good inbuilt audio to enhance production.
