    I just threw some chicken bones and they say you should just install on both machines to see which works best.

    P.S.
    The wing bone indicates you should stop d/l pr0n and peeping at your neighbor's wife at night. Is this correct?

    Either will be fine.

    TommyQuiet has it right, this question gets asked about 3-4 times a week, so have a butchers through the other posts on here for a whole bunch of discussions ...

    I say Mac, because I use Mac myself.
    But I must say that the specs of that PC are foolproof.

    But you know, I'd still go with mac, it's more stable

    Not sure why you had to ask this question for a billionth millionth time, as if you'd like an answer tailor made for just you, but you asked, so here is the answer:

    Incredible as it may sound, both the Mac or the 'flawless' PC will run Traktor fine, so either.

    You already answered your own question.

    I use Macs. That Mac is fine.
    Unless someone can see something bad in the fine detail of that PC spec that i cant see then this thread is pointless and gets closed real quick before it turns pissy.

    In this situation I'd use the mac for DJing. Why?

    Because it leaves your PC laptop for you to do all your other crap with!

    Play games, surf, get viruses, clog up, fragment, etc your PC laptop while keeping the mac nice and pristine
