    Any laptop would do... just make sure you get a good usb/firewire audio interface. I use an M-Audio Audiophile USB and its excellent. The only issue is that it lacks XLR connectors so its not for real serious recording. The other decent option under 200$ is the EMU 0404 USB... this has balanced XLR options however right now its availability is a bit suspect. Any other sound card with stable ASIO 2.0 drivers will also do as well. I suggest you stay away from creatives for recording.

    appreciate your help man

    but to be honest it seems impossible to find soundcards other than creative..
