Music production requires a system with a fast processor, RAM and big storage for all those hefty raw files. Hence, you must choose your laptop carefully, as a sub-par device won’t help you create your masterpieces. In case you’re not sure which one to get, we have made a list of the best laptops for music production. Note that these have been curated based on their listed features and availability on Amazon.

Apple MacBook Pro

The Apple MacBook Pro is packed with a 9th Gen Six-Core Intel Core i7 processor. It has a 16-inch Retina display with True Tone technology and an AMD Radeon Pro 5300M graphics with GDDR6 memory for fast rendering and seamless playback. It also features a 16GB DDR4 RAM (expandable up to 64GB) and 512GB Ultrafast SSD (expandable up to 8TB) to help you store all your music files. The MacBook comes with a six-speaker system with force-cancelling woofers so that users don’t necessarily have to connect an external speaker or headset while sampling tunes. The thermal architecture in MacBook Pro has been completely redesigned featuring larger impellers with improved fan blades for optimal airflow and more heat-dispersing fins for more effective cooling. As a result of this, you should be able to use the device for extended periods without it heating up. The 100-Wh lithium-polymer battery in the device not only powers the larger display and delivers higher maximum sustained power, but it also provides a longer battery life of up to 11 hours, according to the brand. Are you worried about the safety of your creative data? Every MacBook Pro is equipped with the Apple T2 Security Chip – second-generation custom Mac silicon chip, designed to make everything more secure.
