That's the same speed as a 1400$ mac desktop computer for 1000$ less, and don't try to pull out the old "Macs don't get viruses though!"... They get viruses just as easily as any other computer. That's just a common misconception by the American public.

 

Yep, mac's indeed are very very vulnerable machines. I might even say more than Windows (7 and above) since most mac users still believe they can't be infected and thus make for extremely easy targets. Apple has also let many holes unpatched in the past (this happened very recently with iOS and oSX regarding ssl - think I'm not sure).

Third, they lack moddability. Fourth, not good for professional programmers, music producers, or anything other than someone that got it for free from their job.

Well, I can't speak for musicians since I am not one (nor can I even play an instrument - piano and violin are on my to learn list right now) but as someone who is looking for a career as a programmer, and about to start CS, a Macbook is a pretty good choice. The ability to develop iOS apps and at the same time use Windows and any Linux distro on the same hardware is amazing. In this case, it works out pretty cheap overall. Having said that, I'm a Windows man through and through. I'll probably end up with something like an Asus Zenbook Infinity instead of Macbook (not a fan of the way Macbooks look, heh).

The only one I haven't heard in full was Knock Madness, but I've heard more Hopsin than I'd ever care to again.

He is very polarizing. You either love him or you get sick of him.

My problem with him is he's my age but raps like a teenager with high school problems. I was SHOCKED when I found out he wasn't 18 or 19.

Knock Madness is much more mature. He was younger when he did most of the other stuff. Have you heard Ill Mind of Hopsin 5?

This, unfortunately, is a genre wide problem. Part of the reason I don't normally listen to rap anymore (save some K-os, Outkast, and old Eminem stuff an some random newer rap here or there like Drake). Good thing about this is, it allowed me to traverse into different genres and I have since become a fan of Rock, J-rock, Pop,  Jazz and a whole bunch of other stuff.

I suggest giving a listen to Nocturnal Rainbows. It's a very good song. Unfortunately can't say that for the rest of his stuff...

I've heard it along with every other one of his songs.

SomeGuyDude should give it a shot though.

Yea, my "setup" is a Pair of Denon Ah-d600 and a fiio e07k. I mean, you'd think it was close to mid-fi... I'd consider headphones like HD 650+ and He-500+ "Hi-fi", but someone mentioned that those are basically still mid-fi.

It took me 3 months working part-time to get all the money. Couldn't be any happier <3

Y U NO LIKE HOPSIN? He is one of the few rappers I actually enjoy.

He thinks he's a lot smarter than he is. The whole "Ill Mind" series was like he thought he was some revolutionary who's here to shatter the foundations of hip hop or something, but really he's just another guy.

I produce dubstep, and fyi, mac does NOT have fl studio, nor do they have 95% of the programs I use to produce! They have garage band... Good for amateurs, but it lacks features and functionality for professional use. Maybe they have a few programs I've never heard of, but by far the best(imo) and most widely used is fl studio.

that entire series of songs was his random thoughts on different topics that pop into his head... He is the only rapper who calls people who smoke drugs f****** idiots as far as I can tell!... Or at least I remember it was something about them being stupid. Don't remember the exact words.

You've never heard of Logic? Pro Tools? Ableton Live? Propellorhead Reason?

 

I know people in the audio and film industry. You know what they use? Macs, for the most part. Pro Tools and occasionally Logic for audio, Final Cut or Adobe Premiere for video, Photoshop for images. 

 

FL Studio is... well, it's popular for hobbyists who make loop-based audio, so sure I can see why you like it for dubstep, but it is not at ALL industry standard for audio. In fact, if you want to be on the pro circuit in audio production and you aren't using Pro Tools you're already way behind.

 

EDIT: Please don't take this the wrong way, but you're a 15 year old kid who's doing this in his spare time for fun. I'm creeping up on thirty and I know people who work for Pixar, 2K studios, make music videos and commercials. You're speaking from a position of not really knowing what you're talking about. This isn't to insult your intelligence, you just haven't been exposed to what's being discussed here. You didn't know that Steam was available for the Mac and that's been out for a WHILE. I don't even know what audio production software you're using that's not available on Mac but I'm GUESSING it's all <$50 stuff that you find in a google search for "beatmaking software".
