In this video I list the top 5 windows laptops for music production. These are recommendations from producers and musicians who actually USE these laptops and are getting real results with music production. These are laptops for FL Studio and laptops for Ableton Live – pretty much any DAW that can run on Windows. All these laptops have an i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and can be purchased with 512 GB SSD. These all come in 15” screen versions. Rather than listing benchmark tests that may not mean much to your music production workflow, I’ve asked my audience of producers and musicians which laptops they trust for their music production setup. If you are looking for a laptop for music studio, a laptop that runs FL Studio or Ableton Live, you’ve come to the right place. You can buy any of these laptops using the links below.

    Kudos for the video content! Sorry for butting in, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you heard the talk about – Riddleagan Beating Sonorousness Remedy (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a smashing exclusive product for getting professional music production software minus the headache. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my cooworker got excellent results with it.

  2. marty toledo on May 18, 2020 at 4:13 pm

    Excellent reviews really nice major league professional

  3. Yo on May 18, 2020 at 4:14 pm

    That beat in the background🔥🔥🔥🔥

  4. Jagger Contreras on May 18, 2020 at 4:20 pm

    Protools. #1

  5. Ibrahim Hamed on May 18, 2020 at 4:20 pm

    There are people that have hp omen saying they suffer from audio latency using Ableton? Can anyone confirm ? I consider on buying an hp omen 15 1660 ti ?

  6. TheRealJamoShingo78 on May 18, 2020 at 4:20 pm

    Please build your own PC if you dont have to move it around. It sounds good in theory but the value for money is awful and it only has a short shelf life. If you build a PC you can change your components as and when you need to or you can afford. Wayyyy more usb ports. If you have no clue feel free to message me. Latency issues are down to your DAW and interface not who manufactured the laptop. Looks do not matter, they cant help you when you need extra power. Sometimes you’re better off with a tascam 4track than wasting money on a laptop.

  7. Jagger Contreras on May 18, 2020 at 4:21 pm

    Pics, no good for

  8. Carson M on May 18, 2020 at 4:22 pm

    Oh yeah no problem lemme whip out my 6 grand for my computer…..yeah right

  9. RyaanMT Mashups on May 18, 2020 at 4:24 pm

    I’m looking to create mashups and I’m not sure whether to get a computer or a laptop but I think I’d get a laptop, any opinions? Thanks,

  10. Unbiased Anomaly on May 18, 2020 at 4:24 pm

    Not gonna lie but the surface pro 7 is pretty good at handling FL and ableton from my experience

  11. Steezy Danny on May 18, 2020 at 4:27 pm

    Would these still be good to use in this year? (2020)💀?

  12. Uber A on May 18, 2020 at 4:30 pm

    Would an i3 processor be okay to use?

  13. Bubbl on May 18, 2020 at 4:33 pm

    Hey I’m really stupid but I bought a gaming pc for music production will that work or do I need an actual laptop

  14. Prageeth Athapaththu on May 18, 2020 at 4:34 pm

    Dell is the best mmmmmm no issue 😳

  15. DJ PADDY (SHIV BEAT'S) on May 18, 2020 at 4:38 pm

    Sir if there is latency problem in dell xps….pls…tell that the should uninstall dell support from there laptop…..I solved my problem by uninstalling it☺️

  16. Samir BKZ on May 18, 2020 at 4:39 pm

    people i make beats in a dell i3 3rd 4gb ram and 500 hdd so dont let nothing from holding you. i use fl studio just hustle to get what you want and dont let no low spect pc hold you down .

  17. Logging Out on May 18, 2020 at 4:41 pm

    The reason I am watching this video is because I am sick off Apple. Don’t get me wrong, macbooks are powerful, but Apple just ruins it with the cloud. Therefore, having a bit more gigs of Files (music Files are massive) just makes it full way too quickly. Also, the newer macbooks only have a usb-c port, so if you want to connect a usb, you need an adapter and after a year of using it’s not working anymore. I cannot connect my DJ Controller anymore and the harddrive I bought is thrown out the entire time it’s plugged in. Anyone with me?

  18. Shashank Tandon on May 18, 2020 at 4:42 pm

    Hello sir,
    You make very informative videos thank you…
    I have a question!
    i have 2019 Macbook Pro 15inch, with 16 gb Ram and 512 Gb ssd,
    Which option is better, to buy external hdd or ssd? I’m gonna use it for kontakt and spectrasonics libraries and tones of audio samples such as loops and one shots. Is it worth that money to buy external ssd or hdd?

  19. lacuevadelvampiro on May 18, 2020 at 4:42 pm

    thank you sooo much!!

  20. Armin Verwest on May 18, 2020 at 4:43 pm

    Dell precision 7740 is soooo perfect 👌. No latency issues. Powerful. Designed for workstations.

  21. zarash on May 18, 2020 at 4:44 pm

    Sanjay you didnt mention if using any laptops actually makes a difference in sound quality, or any laptop will create the same exact sound?

  22. HOMESKOOL on May 18, 2020 at 4:44 pm

    Me sitting here with my crappy acer with 8gb of ram and 256gb ssd

  23. zarash on May 18, 2020 at 4:47 pm

    Dell laptops have so much latency I’m starting to think it’s someone forcing it on manufacturers to tarnish Dells name since Dell has no idea how these laptops are put together and it’s simple a catalog and marketing company now. So sad Dell is now just a front label.

    I have an i7-8550 with 16GB ram and it’s super slow to boot or even open the file explorer takes so much efforts on the HDD.

  24. Davian Herrera on May 18, 2020 at 4:48 pm

    I have the lenovo thinkpD X240 IT IS VERY GOOD

  25. evin dibrugarh on May 18, 2020 at 4:50 pm

    Hey Sanjay what do you think which version of fl studio is better the producer edition or the signature edition please reply

  26. Mohamed Ahmed on May 18, 2020 at 4:50 pm

    MacBook is the best

  27. Walter B. on May 18, 2020 at 4:51 pm

    Does anybody really? Just buy a Mac. Better, faster, cheaper.

  28. SoMe1 GiFTeD on May 18, 2020 at 4:51 pm

    I’d just like to add I’m running an i5 MacBook Pro 13” with 16gb of ram and it breezes through FL studio work. Not saying it’s better than any of the machines here just noticed you recommended i7 etc and wanted to give my opinion with the device I have incase anyone was wondering if an i5 MacBook Pro can handle it.

  29. Simba King on May 18, 2020 at 4:52 pm

    Dell???…hell no!!

  30. Meadøw. W on May 18, 2020 at 4:53 pm

    got the dell xps 13 with an i7 8thGen, 512GB SSD and 16 GB ram. Latency issues everywhere. Impossible to run DAW’s…..:(

  31. Ankit kmr on May 18, 2020 at 4:57 pm

    Are you Indian ?

  32. safiqul hussain on May 18, 2020 at 4:59 pm

    sir please make a video on desktop essentials for music production and video editing at minimum cost and maximum

  33. Andrew Stonerock on May 18, 2020 at 4:59 pm

    I just scored a lenovo legion y545 for my studio. 9th gen i7 9750, 16 gig ram, nvidia gtx graphic with 6 gig vram, 512 gig ssd drive, and 1 terabyte hdd. It runs studio one v.4 no problem, it handles my guitar tracks, bass, vocals, and superior drummer 3 without any issues at all. Im pretty pumped about it. now i can stop hauling my big desktop to and from the big studio to my home studio.

  34. suavee1001 on May 18, 2020 at 4:59 pm

    Hi, I am a college student and aspiring producer. I am in need of a new laptop (more specifically, a MacBook Pro required because of Apple programs). The laptop I currently use is a 7 yr old PC and is running on it’s last leg. Due to school, having to support myself, and other financial constraints/obligations, I cannot afford the $3,000+ latest MacBook Pro. If you would like to donate anything here’s a link to my PayPal: Thanks you for taking the time to read this. 😊

  35. John Timothy Apilado on May 18, 2020 at 5:00 pm

    Hi Sanjay! If you have time, can you check out the new Dell XPS 17 if it still has the same problems with latency? Thanks alot! 🙂

  36. Tom Kenning on May 18, 2020 at 5:01 pm

    Does anyone know how big a difference the CPU makes? I’m stucj between an i5-9300H and an i7-9750H, just wondering if the i7 is worth the extra cash.

    I just wanna know what it does, like will the CPU help me render quicker or add more tracks, or use more VSTs? Which is CPU and which is RAM?

  37. Aphex on May 18, 2020 at 5:03 pm

    cores are really important for your processor more cores more power and tracks plugins etc you can run in a secession

  38. RyaanMT Mashups on May 18, 2020 at 5:03 pm

    These are a lot 😳😰

  39. The Random Crud Channel on May 18, 2020 at 5:04 pm

    It’s on the pricier side, but an iMac isn’t a bad option. They come with a keyboard and mouse, and plus they’re won’t clutter your desk with cables. Or you could get an older MacBook Pro.

  40. Ananth Vasudevan on May 18, 2020 at 5:04 pm

    Would you recommend Alienware Laptops for music production?

  41. marchingboi on May 18, 2020 at 5:04 pm

    i use the hp omen 15 and it is amazing!, good for music production!

  42. Jacob Smith Jr on May 18, 2020 at 5:05 pm

    This is funny to because I’ve been using Dell laptops for 20 years because of their build quality. My desktop is an Asus but my laptop is a Dell Latitude 5289 2in1 i7 16gb 1TB SSD.

  43. Amani Smith on May 18, 2020 at 5:07 pm


  44. Michel Tousignant on May 18, 2020 at 5:07 pm

    Is 1TB HDD can give good performance for music production?

  45. lldjwhyteell on May 18, 2020 at 5:08 pm

    No reason to spend this much money….just build a pc

  46. Queen Cobra 911 on May 18, 2020 at 5:09 pm

    Does anyone know how to make home recording studio with laptop, I’d like to record karaoke music for fun, do i need any software …. Please ! Laptop + Mic + ???? + ????+

  47. Master Stacker on May 18, 2020 at 5:10 pm

    Once you go Mac you never go back.

  48. Italo Disco Lover on May 18, 2020 at 5:10 pm

    The best laptop you can buy is the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14. Probably the best laptop ever. It has a Ryzen 9 4900HS 8-core processor

  49. Vortresso Music on May 18, 2020 at 5:11 pm
