I've been a Sonar user on a Windows O/S and I've been OK with the software. I have been told by me music engineer to switch to Pro Tools because it is more convenient for him, however, he has not provided any real arguments as to why I should make the change.

1) What would be some of your best arguments as to why I should flip over to a Mac and go with Pro Tools 11 vs just continuing to work with Sonar X2?

2) What would be your suggestions as to what MAC hardware to buy, where to buy it, and what I'd expect to spend for a good performing system?

3) Are there any recommended bundled system which sells the software bundled with the Mac?

Hi ronbo123,

If you're serious in recording and producing your best bet is to use Pro Tools. Pro Tools HD is for professional(s). The reason why it's better is because it's the music industry choice of producing and recording music.

You would want to use a MAC instead of Windows if you're going to use Pro Tools HD in a professional environment. The reason is MAC are more reliable and have less a headache compared to Windows. Plus in the music industry uses MACS too.

I would take a look at Sweetwater.

As for bundles I do not know. You can also contact Apple for desktops as well. I would at least get a hold of Sweetwater and ask as well. They have great professional sale engineers that use the professional equipment.

Your best bet is to get Avid Pro Tools and get a MAC. Again Pro Tools HD is for professionals and LE is more for home based.
