    Default Need help for a new notebook

    Hello guys, im new here. I used for a long time the Traktor software and controllers with an old notebook(i3 2.0Ghz, 4gb) works fine. But now i get a Pioneer DDJ-RX and my notebook cant run the Rekordbox...
    Now im looking for a brand new notebook to run the Rekordbox, im between i5 7ēgen or i7 7ēgen, both with 8GBs Ram (i dont want a MAC).
    With one of those i choose?

    You will be fine with i5 and 4 GB RAM if you run only Traktor.

    The 8750H is an I7. Anything with 8GB or more will get ya going.

    I suggest that you get as much power and memory as you can afford so that it takes longer for your computer to become obsolete, but in the meantime the minimum system requirements can be found here: https://rekordbox.com/en/support/system.php
