I'm about to update my hardware and am looking at getting a 2nd hand lenovo x60 or x60s.
x60s runs cooler and therefore longer on battery than the x60. There
is an option within my budget (200 pounds) to get the core 2 duo which
seems to have the advantage of running a 64b distro. Now as far as I'm
aware pure data is generally 32b but I will be using this machine for
many years to come hopefully, so I am wondering whether I should get the
c2d option as a way of future-proofing?
Although I use Puredyne as my OS, therefore making use of the
various programs that come with it, pure data is the thing I'm most
interested in, using it for composition and performance. So the best
way of running pd is what I am most concerned about.
If any one has any pointers or opinion about the usefulness or not of this I would be delighted to hear from you.
