2012 Macbook Pro 15" good enough for Reason 10?

Want to talk about music hardware or software that doesn't include Reason?

Just wondering if anyone still uses this machine in their creative process? checking one out on ebay for <$500... anti glare display, 16G of RAM, 1TB HDD, 4-core i7 ivy bridge @ 2.6ghz (turbo to 3.6) , dedicated graphics card

I'm running off the experience of my 2009 Mac Mini... which I gave to my nephew years ago and is still running great (though I never tried Reason on it).

Sweet, ty, just received it and testing it out... the DSP meter doesn't even budge, lol. This thing is a beast... pleased i didn't go the new route... it is chugging at 6 years old.

Well, it's really dependent on what you expect... Would love my 2012 13" MacBook Pro to be able to run more instances and devices, but it still gets stuff done.
