I have always recorded with a PC.
What specs must a laptop have to effectively replace a PC?

I generally record one track at a time, never more than 2.

I typically do about 6 tracks.

Any modern pc will work fine. I did a 16 track recording in Pro Tools about 10 years ago with a Dell Laptop. Input was from Presonus mixer. Laptop handled it with no problem at all. Your needs are much less. Just use a good interface with it and you should be fine.

I agree with Mark. Any decent laptop will be able to record multiple tracks at a time, let alone the one at a time you require. Just make sure not to get a Chromebook or other such laptop that can’t support a major DAW.
