What's the best desktop, non Mac, for producing music. My laptop lags when I try and make music so I was thinking of getting a new computer. And what are some specs to look at while looking for a fast, durable computer? Thanks in advance.

Start off by going to "My Computer" then "WINDOWS" then "system32" and delete that file to check how much RAM you have.

But in all seriousness, I have a pretty basic desktop and FL10 runs fine. I don't think there's very specific specs required.

You don't really need a great computer to produce, assemble it yourself, or go to a store where they'll assemble it for you,but pick the parts yourself, don't buy an assembled PC, The only assemble PC's worth buying are Macs, Alienwares, Origins and a few more gaming rigs, but those are expensive as fuck.

I mean I know it's not necessary and it's not just my music programs that run slow. It's the computer overall, but I guess I'll just do this. Seems like it's the best thing to do.

When it comes to producing/making music Desktop > Laptop unless you have a mac, those things are perfect for making music.

I would upgrade your RAM and get a better sound card. RAM is like $40 and sound cards are a bit more.

Get a custom PC on the cheap, hack it for Mac OS X

This. I make my beats with FL10 on a cheap-ish laptop. I have an external soundcard, but my ram/memory is nothing to brag about. Just mix your beats in a separate project file to the one you make them in, (which you should probably be doing anyway) or even break it up into 3 different files, Drums, Other Shit, And Mix.
