Powerhouse Computer - Fantastic Design!First of all I want to comment of the design of the computer housing. The modular design is the best I have ever seen. The sturdy aluminum case and sliding modular racks make it very easy to add memory chips. The Hard Drive bays are just as easy to work with. I now have a total of 4 hard drives installed inside my computer. It is a brilliant design.
The Magic mouse is cool and fun to use. If you are big into short cuts in Protools you may not miss the right and left-click option that the magic mouse cannot perform. I need that for editing. So I just hooked up my track-ball mouse to the included keyboard. It was easy and fast to reinstall protools, my virtual synths and my plug-ins. It was even faster than I expected, I guess the DVD drive is faster and the 8-cores can work much faster to install the programs.
Sweetwater tech support also gave a helping hand on a few glitches along the way (read as operator error). Thanks to all including my Sweetwater sales rep David Hess (1398)
