    Default Got vestax vci 100.. Now help me decide Mac vs PC

    My needs right now is very simple. I need to have a fast enough pc/mac to handle traktor pro. I will not gig out with the vci yet but I am planning to take it out in the future.

    MAC/macbook
    -very reliable
    -audio friendly
    -hardly crash
    -EXPENSIVE

    PC/Laptop
    -Cheap(you can build a very fast pc/laptop for under $1000)
    -fast
    -A monster if you know what yo are doing(building tested compatible hardwares)
    -Freezes alot
    -Not sure if your build will be good until you build it and test.
    -CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP






    Portability is not an issue right now and I am willing to carry my COMPUTER desktop to gigs HAHAH.


    Please no Fanboy opinion. I need honest unbiased opinion only!

    plus the worst possible thing would be for your computer to freeze during a set, that alone should push you towards a mac.

    Um... I was at a gig on Saturday and the DJ's MBP crashed and she lost all her audio... complete... dead... air

    On a Mac...

    If you treat a PC right it will treat you right, I genuinely believe that. Set your budget and then shop within that.

    Also, I'm sure you CAN bring a desktop, but are you really going to want to?
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    yes and I have done it. I brought a stupid 17 inch crt monitor with an Imac mini to a gig... Got a few laughs but whatever, it works.


    I still don't get this "if you treat a PC right" you are preaching about. I did an xp audio tweak, reformat and clean installed to see if traktor will work in my desktop(2.6p4 2gig mem and only traktor running) and still getting audio glitches and dropouts.

    Well, what audio interface are you using?

    The argument that I hear all the time that PCs will crash, or you will get viruses, or any of the other excuses, is bullshit. If you log into multiple sites with spyware and adware and don't put anti-virus or anti-spyware software on, then yes, you will be fucked. If you don't take care of the machine then it will fall apart.

    I am still running the same Dell I bought three years ago and it works fine. I think it's finally starting to go, but I have a new machine to replace it. I have treated it well and it treats me well.

    Something no one has weighed in on yet,
    -Windows is the devil
    -Macs are cute
    -Steve Jobs cares for your family and livelihood
    -Join the socialist mac revolution!
