Looking for a notebook, needs to be a as good as my sansa clip+ as a source. Other stuff is irrelavent. I couldn't care less about the other specs.
notebook advice, solely based on SQ
Is there even such thing as notebooks with dedicated sound cards? As mentioned above, having no electronic hiss is about the best you can hope for. Any audiophile usb DAC should sound much better.
Why, do they put a decent HP out in the aluminum ones?
OK, Apple is pretty multimedia-focused, but a notebook HP out, is always a notebook HP out.
I have the plastic macbook, when used with IEMs there is a large amount of hiss and distortion in the lower frequencies.

Hmm and here I thought my W510 had poor audio, it has no hiss or noise, it's just very mid centric, dull and lifeless sounding.
Anyway, I'd recommend the Audiotrak Prodigy Cube to anyone wanting a portable USB DAC for their laptops.
