    Default Let me pick your brain for a second.

    I'm thinking about selling my beast of a gaming desktop and picking up a second laptop for a completely redundant gear setup.

    I already plan on getting a second Itch controller around the middle of next month. So that would have me rolling up at a gig with 2 laptops, 2 controllers, 6 usb cables, 4 power strips.

    Should I do it? I dont game as much as I used to, and honestly, any time I spent gaming, I now spend dj'ing since I decided to push hard with my dj career this year.

    So whatcha think?

    If you have any questions before you vote just post em here and I'll answer honestly rather than argue with people I asked advice from (i personally hate it when people ask for advice then basically argue with you since they already made up their mind before making their advice post in the first place. god that drives me nuts)..

    can I just ask why you want to turn up at gigs with such a truckload of gear?

    Guessing the duals are simply for backup. Incase something goes wrong, he has some gear to jump straight back on the set with.

    i had one, battery life is absolutely terrible on those things.

    im a huge fan of the hp envy series. fantastic build quality, great battery life. and really decent graphics.

    my envy 14" has a 1 gig ati 5650 (with switchable intel graphics for battery life).

    hard to beat for an 800 dollar laptop.
