    I started out on a Desktop, but got myself a second-hand Macbook around the same time when I decided to buy a controller and Traktor.

    I've only gigged out on a desktop. It's not fun. Got a macbook recently, so much easier.

    I've seen it done, but it's not pretty. A desktop is much more suited to home or house partys, not in the club.

    That said, I crewed for a show once which had an electronia duo hooking up synths and sampling through Ableton, all through a desktop PC which was a b***h to get on & off stage, as well as the time needed for it to boot up. Apart from that, great show.
