    Get a MacBook during the Buy a Macbook, get a free iPod Touch deal. Now define music production for me, if you will.

    well I have an 08 MacBook Pro and it gets HOT. It doesn't overheat, but the thing runs really hot, especially on youtube.

    Garage Band doesn't come preinstalled, it's part of iLife (which I think is included in most MacBook purchases) and while I've not actually used it, I've seen what it can do and it's awesome.
