Best laptop for music production 2020

What’s the best laptop for music production 2020? In this article and video we have been looking closely at the recent MacBook Pro which features the new Apple M1 CPU!

The best laptop for music production 2020 is definitely the M1 MacBook Pro, hands down! It’s lightweight, portable and has tremendous power in such a small package. The only downside is actually the connectivity, only 2 Thunderbolt 3 (and USB 4.0) ports, but that’s easily solved with a TB hub, like the Belking Thunderbolt Dock Core.

Why is the MacBook Pro with the M1 CPU the optimal laptop for music production?

Because the M1 MacBook Pro is the first modern laptop I’ve come across that doesn’t heat up like hellfire as soon as you start producing. It’s cold and swift although you run demanding software and plugins.

The Apple M1 is an ARM-based system on a chip (SoC). It was designed by Apple Inc. as a central processing unit (CPU) and graphics processing unit (GPU) for its Macintosh computers and iPad Pro tablets. It was inspired by their Apple A14 Bionic chip.
