3. HP ENVY x360

The HP ENVY x360 is a great and affordable option for you to pick one of the best laptops for music production.

It might not have the same power gaming laptop or the Surface Pro 2 has, however, its technical specs easily meet the necessities you should produce music.

This laptop also includes a tablet-style touch screen that’s compatible with a smart stylus.

It does not separate from the body like the Surface Pro 2, however, the screen folds a full 360 degrees so you could use the laptop and touch screen in a variety of methods.

With its 8GB of ram and i5 processor, you could comfortably make music in your DAW too.

When you are looking for a reasonably priced music production laptop that is definitely one to have on your list.

4. ASUS VivoBook Slim

The most reasonably priced option on this list is the ASUS VivoBook Slim.

It is a fairly easy laptop with a modern-looking design, a big 15.6 inch display, comprehensive connection ports including modern USB 3.1 Type-C and Type-A connectors and standard USB 2.0 ports.

Its lower cost makes the VivoBook a better starter laptop that could handle your music production wants even if it comes with only 8GB of RAM and an Intel i5 processor.

5. Lenovo ThinkBook 14s

While it is more known for being a business pc, Lenovo’s ThinkBook series is known for being a strong yet portable option.

The ThinkBook is known for its long-lasting battery life and durability.

The laptop is water-resistant and is protected from spills, extreme temperatures, and vibrations.

So when you usually find yourself working in a thumping, spill-prone night club this can be a great option for you.

We recommend selecting a model with a bigger screen, at least 8GB of RAM and an i5 or higher processor.

6. Razer Blade Stealth

The Razer Blade is first and foremost a gaming laptop so its higher price tag is justified by a superior graphics and sound card.

You will not need these to produce music, however, the powerful 16GB RAM, i7 processor, and 512 GB SSD drive that comes with it give you more than enough to make without limits in any DAW.

This model of laptop is popular amongst many FL Studio users given its powerful specs and cool aesthetic.

It comes with an eye-catching shifting neon backlit keyboard.

The 13-inch model comes with a smaller screen, however, it’s really portable and comes with ample USB, USB-C, and HDMI connections so you could easily hook it up to a bigger monitor.

Considering how much power the laptop packs, you’re getting great value for its mid to high-range price.

7. ASUS Rog Strix

Another gaming laptop that needs to be on your list is the ASUS Rog Strix.

Despite its admittedly gamer aesthetic, the laptop comes with very powerful specs at a comparable price to other gaming laptops.

Its main advantage is its bigger 15.6-inch display even if it is a bit bulkier than other laptops on this checklist.

If you’re searching for a laptop in the mid to high price range this a great one to consider.

8. HP Omen 15

The last gaming laptop on this list to look at is the HP Omen 15.

This laptop actually gives loads of power with 12 GB of RAM, an i7 processor, and 128GB of SSD storage on top 1TB of hard drive storage.

While it has that bulkier gaming aesthetic, the laptop gives a sizeable a 15.6-inch display.

The HP Omen 15 prices are barely lower than its counterparts on this list since its specs are barely behind the Razer or ASUS Rog Strix.

However, for music production, this laptop has ample processing and memory for any project.

9. The Apple iPad

It isn’t a laptop, however, it’s a portable, powerful, and affordable option.

There are many music production apps and DAWs that work very well on iOS.

Actually, some of the biggest tracks today were produced with mobile apps.

Working with a touchscreen interface is a completely new experience that could sometimes be inspiring.

Plus, you could purchase hardware add-ons that enable you to use a keyboard and mouse with your iPad.

10. Build your own PC

If portable laptops for music production is not something you need, building a custom desktop PC may be your best option.

You will get maximum customizability and you could always change components when you are not satisfied.

There are many builds you could find online in pc and music production forums.

Plus, you will get the satisfaction of having a computer that’s uniquely yours!
