    Default Which laptop do you use / recommend?

    I'm in desperate need of a laptop as I can't haul my tower to the club every week haha, it's almost not worth it!

    I was wondering laptops the lot of you prefer. Please note what hardware (i.e. VCI) and software you're also using to DJ.

    Macbook Pro 15.4" / 2.6 Ghz / 4 gig ram
    Audio Kontrol 1
    Remote SL 25
    Turntable (ammobox soon! omgyay!)

    Running Ableton.

    Personally i'd say mac all the way, except you have to buy the software if your a pirate then probably not for you (although you can install bootcamp - parallels doesnt work so hot for audio stuff). Also MBP are fkn expensive ($4k). A macbook is easily enough for you, i got a MBP cos i'm a graphic designer. But i love mine, its sooo pretty.

    Dell Inspiron E1505/ 2.8 Ghz/ 2 gig ram
    X-session pro
    M-Audio oxygen
    Ableton live

    I love my dell it works fine running ableton and all my effects. But I am thinking about upgrading to a mac book pro to use strictly for music. Cause I use my dell for school and also internet.

    honestly bro, unless you need the 15.4" screen over the 13" dont spend extra $1500 to get a MBP, its not really worth it, a macbook can run everything musicwise sweet.

    Alternatively Unless your really buying for the look..

    Just bought myself a
    DELL VOSTRO 1000
    German: http://www1.euro.dell.com/content/pr...dt1&l=de&s=bsd
    US:
    http://www.dell.com/content/products...tab=bundlestab
    (seems to be more expensive)
    because they are really cheap at the moment and as someone said very stable. You can buy them cheaper as a Business, so the price is 329 instead of 370 (i bought the middle one).

    I use a Dell, it works fine. Just take care of it. I have enough screen space for Traktor to be clear, and everything works fine. It doesn't need to be a Mac, trust me.
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    Dude, buy your software! You get support, updates and documentation. It's worth it.

    Seriously, do it today.

    (DJTT Editors: can we make a strong statement against cracked software on this site? I think it needs to be stated clearly and from the top.)
