    Default Macbook Air

    Would one be suitable for DJing? I only see MBPs and wondered if an Air was just as suitable

    I bought a SL1 from a scratch DJ who uses an Air. Works great for him. He only really needs one USB port and doesn't need a large music library.

    screen size might be an issue if you go 13" but in all seriousness yea as been stated they'll handle traktor perfectly fine. I'm thinking of picking up an 11" next year as a bit of a toy just to take over to mates houses and stuff If I go and have a jam or if my MBP is down in the dumps.

    I had the original macbook air 1.6 dual core 80gb hd, it managed traktor just about. The new ones are much faster so I guess it would be fine. It didnt like my audio 8 at all
