If I were in your shoes, and had VERY deep pockets, I would be more
inclined to look at the Muse Receptor, in one of their bundled


Doing something like this would give you access to Kontakt, which is a
very popular sampler right now.

These machines are definitely pro quality, but expensive.  However, I
would much rather buy something like this than buy a computer,
install/configure Windows, install the sample library, etc.  With
something like this, you could take it out on the road and not mess up
your computer.

Bonus feature:  It runs Linux.  :)  I think some of the Muse folks
hang out on this list, so you might want to talk to them.

(Disclaimer:  I do not work for Muse, I do not own a Receptor.  I want
to, tho.  :)
