Has anybody used a Notebook PC with a Firestation? I'm looking for recommendations from people who have actually been using a particular brand and model succesfully. Called Presonus and they don't recommend any specific brand. I don't want to buy until I can confirm that the Notebook will work.
I already bought one that met all the specs but it just won't work for a couple reasons. The first is a low level hum that comes through the Firewire cable whenever the power supply is plugged in. The second problem is clicks and pops that happen every time the cooling fan comes on. These problems were worked on endlessly and can't be fixed. I'll sell it and get one that will work if I can get a solid recomendation. I need to get a portable recording rig going soon. Please help.
