Laptops are a bad choice for a gaming rig or a DAW. The price
performance is not there. A very capable AMD64 machine can be had for
under $500, less if you get no OS. The soundblaster Audigy line
supports low latency if you don't need a lot of inputs
I picked up the DAW used, upgraded the CPU and Memory (I had a 4400+ X2
lying around). In all the sound card alone cost 6 times more than the
rest of the system.

I have been using Ardour for years and there is still a ton that I need
to learn. I suspect that there is no finish line for us :)
The Rosegarden book is not a bad start to Linux audio. It is a tad out
of date (Rosegarden has change a lot), but it still gives you a solid
base from which to grow. You can borrow my copy if you are interested.
