I need your help choosing a new Windows laptop!
I need this laptop mainly for editing sound in Adobe Audition. Based on a 2023 Review by ProRec.com https://prorec.com/best-laptop-for-audacity-adobe-audition/#lg-gram-17-benefits, the second-best Laptop for Audacity & Adobe Audition is LG Gram 17. In April I bought a brand-new LG Gram 17. Very nice and light laptop, very fast, with good battery time. Had only one problem: when editing in Audition, there was a delay between the sound and the mouse cursor, making editing difficult if not impossible.
LG tried to fix the issue in their lab 3 times, but to no avail. More than a half year passed and I’m back to square one. I need a new laptop since the old one is getting really slow. I don’t want to go through the same torture again. Can you please recommend a laptop that is similar in performance with LG Gram 17 and that you are using and know for sure it will be compatible with the latest versions of Acrobat Audition?
Thank you in advance!

I use a HP ProBook - no problems at all. That 'review' looks as though it was created by AI...
Thank you! There are quite a few HP ProBook available, is there a particular one that you would suggest? Just to make sure that I will not run into a problem due to a particular sound card or something else. Thank you again!
This one is a old 450 G2. (basically an old i7 machine) I upgraded the memory to 16gb, and changed the operating system from Windows 7 to 10. And put a 1 terrabyte SSD in it, which helps the boot speed a lot. What you do with the peripherals makes more difference than the processor speed, when it comes to it.
Thing is, all the ProBooks are pretty much okay for Audition. Unlike LG, HP have a reputation to keep up!
