    Default HP Envy 15 Beats w/ Traktor LE = Uh...

    http://www.hp.com/united-states/camp...ats/audio.html

    Apparently, it comes with an Audio 2 which is bundled with Traktor LE. In the very beginning of the Traktor LE video, it's showing someone playing on an Arcade Edition.

    Overpriced like crazy. Get a macbook or macbook pro for that price.

    Also, the intro with the arcade edition is from this Audio 2 DJ commercial:

    Yeah, seriously. If I'm gonna spend $1500 on a laptop, I'm not getting a PC.

    cutflow: it all depends on the quality of your music to begin with.

    Then probably yes. I'm going to bet the A to D converters (drivers) in the audio 2 are better than the ones in your laptop.

    Ermm... ok problems with this bundle:
    1500$ price tag gets you:
    Traktor LE: which costs the same (pretty sure) to upgrade as Traktor 3 LE, which you would get anyways if you bought an Audio 2.
    Audio 2: Costs 100$ right?
    Beats by Dr. Dre: Those cans cost about 200$ and from what I've heard they're not worth it.
    Hp Envy 15": Normal ones start at 1299, [sarcasm] but this is black and has a fancy Beats logo on it so it's worth it right? [/sarcasm]

    Ok so 1500$ gets you about 1500$ of stuff... but still, 1300$ for a windows laptop? That just seems pretty damn steep. Although apparently if you upgrade to i7 processor (god knows how much more that will be) you can get USB 3.0 (bout damn time USB 3.0 arrived)...

    Still think it's not worth it overall.
