anyone wants to share his experiences with cas using new and old laptops?
I dont believe processing power is necessary for good sound; the less stuff you hv running in the background, the better.. like the much raved Bryston using a barebones Taiwan Alix board with decade+ old AMD chip.. apparently can still sound very good; dedicated/well thought thru power supply and Linux software optimization are its tricks..
dont need i5 for 2 channel audio lah.. i'm also using i5; but believe a simple atom based netbook would do.. since netbooks are out of favor perhaps can get a used one and dedicate it for audio. Stop all services except audio ones.. then maybe get the current cream of the crop player, Jplay, to realize the PC's full potential.
