    Default MAC or PC for beginner DJ?

    I need to purchase a laptop (for obvious reasons)
    I use a PC desktop right now
    I need to know which would be better for a beginner, mac or pc?
    thanks!

    stupid question sorry mate. have a good long read through the majority of the threads, you will understand.

    Some people use a P.C, some folks use a mac.

    Different folks different strokes.

    welcome to the forums though.

    here is a rough outline of what NOT to talk about on here.

    -PC vs Mac.
    -sync vs beatmatching
    -Guns
    -drug use
    -Skrillex
    -Deadmau5

    & whatever happens, do not take offense from any critique that Nephew throws your way if you choose to put a ten minute "this is my 1st mix, what do you think" thread up for some feedback. (you have been warned )

    hang around, do some digging through all the old threads, look, listen and learn. you are in the right place

    I lurked for like 2 months before even making an account. And that was just so I could look at all the pics in the Show Your Setup thread.

    PC vs. Mac doesn't really matter, it all depends on what you're comfortable.

    Well since I also use Windows specific software to produce, i guess a pc laptop & desktop would be best too. Thanks for the replies!

    Not a scary place at all.

    There both going to do the same thing as a beginner i would personally recommend getting a PC and spending the money on your controller as thats the other thing you should consider.

    Just don't pile it will crap that you don't need especially from a windows point of view your really going to have an unreliable system if you treat it wrong, keep it clean and what you need Music and software.

    No platform will give you any advntages over cost so its really what your preference is
