Though it’s on the older side, the 15-inch Apple MacBook Pro is a smart choice for music production, thanks to Apple’s Core Audio infrastructure and the MacBook’s hefty base model specs. With a technical foundation like that and built-in, Apple-exclusive perks like Garageband, the MacBook Retina has the market cornered when it comes to proprietary Apple music technology. You also get a sizable 15.4-inch display, comfy keyboard and plenty of ports, including full-size USB, HDMI and an SD Card slot. This machine offers long battery life, too, in case you need to produce music without a charger.
