The M2 puts the speed and power necessary for media production under your fingertips. As the performance and flexibility of laptops continues to gain on desktops, musicians and producers have been demanding a powerful laptop that can run hundreds of audio tracks and dozens of virtual instruments at the same time. The M2 Laptop is just such a perfect beast.

With the M2‚ÄĚLaptop P4 3.2, MusicXPC has produced a 17" beauty that just plain rocks. Music XPC's technicians hooked up a Digi002 to the M2, and noted that it blazed through their 32-track test file without even waking up. Nuendo 3 hummed along with desktop-like performance. It's not the cheapest laptop out there, but if you want the best, sometimes you have to pay a little bit more.

The M2 sets new standards for production laptops with not one but 2 - 7200rpm hard drives, and 1GB of DDR400 RAM means that demanding applications will become less demanding. A peace-of-mind recovery utility reverts the computer to yesterday's state, last week's state, or the factory settings with just a few keystrokes.

A 17" WSXGA+ wide angle screen allows you to see what you're doing even when you are not parked directly in front of the computer, and the DVI out lets you hook up a second monitor. A numeric keypad enables easy keystroke control of the sequencer. The full Intel Pentium 4 desktop processor puts performance ahead of battery life. A Gigabit LAN improves workflow and plays projects stored on other computers via ethernet. The incorporated DVD+RW burner archives your projects quickly and efficiently.


The M2 is all about performance and stability. If you are looking for something with long battery life to watch DVDs on a transatlantic flight, or a laptop for email and presentations, this is not your baby. For musicians, composers, producers and media creators, speed and stability are at the top of the list for what is needed from a computer. This is a computer that will load plug-ins, virtual instruments, and other applications without glitches while the creative juices and music are flowing.

The M2 features a Pentium 4 HT Processor on an 800MHz bus that is fed by 2 - 7,200 rpm hard drives. This combination delivers dozens of linear audio tracks, manhandles virtual instruments and treats CPU intensive Effects plug-ins with indifference.

2 hard drives are better than one: System, Audio Drive

The M2 comes standard with 2 - 7,200 rpm hard drives. The second drive is perfect for dedication to audio recordings while there is still enough room on the System drive for a few choice libraries. Combined with the 60GB system drive, the M2 comes with 160GB of hard drive storage standard. If you have been working with music files on a large scale, you'll know that this magnitude of storage is not excessive.

Tweaked for Music

A closely guarded secret of the M2 is the tweaking that has been done to Windows XP to optimize the machine for audio and video production. This is not a machine for organizing photos, compiling MP3, or surfing the internet - although the M2 can do all these things, this is a power house laptop designed for the heavy lifting of professional audio and video production. The M2 is the result of 12 months of testing and decades spent building media computers. It's ready to go out of the box, just load your media application and start creating your magic.

High Technology and Super Robust

The M2 is really a breakthrough in terms of performance, features and stability. For example, with its GigaBit Ethernet, the M2 can process and manage a project sitting on the hard drive of anther M2. Because the backup utility works outside of Windows, you enjoy a degree of protection that really makes this the most robust of computers. Also with its Recovery Utility, you can recover the system even after it was accidentally formatted. A 3-year ship-back-to-the-depot warranty offers you layers of protection should the unthinkable happen and the machine blows up. The M2 takes care of all the technical considerations so that you can concentrate solely on creativity.
