Giz is right, has to be a good spot so no background shit and a good recorder. Thesedays you got digital shit... So recorder is better, yet I dunno if that tone stuff does much these days... The laptop deal can work but that's a bitch if you only need the laptop for that reason, if you got a new nice PDA sure can do that, however i'd say Redboxing is still good way to go.
