Editor's Notes

December 18, 2018: While Apple has among the smoothest performing machines for music production, their latest models all lack a USB-A port, and instead employ exclusively USB-C. Adapters are available, as noted, but that pushed them back a few spots on the list. Offerings from Lenovo, MSI, and Acer rounded out the top options.
