..My comment : It is not a new Laptop model but I chosed it because of the screen and the low noise level that I have read about this machine ?? The CPU is 3.gen. i7 Yvy Bridge ? (I was nearly buying an ASUS N56JR ( with : i7-4700QM / Intel® HM86 Chipset - NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 760M - 4 off USB3 ) for the same price but beause of the noise level ?? and screen size I chosed this older model K95 to use primarly for recording and the UR824. ) Hope that it is capable of handling cubase 7.5 and some upgradings after that ? ...possible increase the RAM to 16 GB ?
Nice if somebody with experience wIth UR824 Cubase 7.0 /7.5 could reply on these issues ? The laptop is not in store before end of March, so changes might be possible ??
