    Shit display. I hated Traktor on a 1366x768 screen with my old laptop. The sweet spot is to find a 15.4in laptop with a 1080p screen. That is the sweet spot.

    Yeah I recently bought a lenovo with kick ass specs but the max resolution is 1366x768 and it does get a bit cramped when you're rocking four decks.

    All that power yet still a dreaded 1366x768 screen. Get one with 1440x900 or better, especially since it's 14".

    Agreed, you want a 1080p display really for Traktor.

    Also worth noting is that the GPU in this one sucks, the Intel HD 3000 is PAINFULLY slow; not an issue if you're just DJing with the machine, but if you intend to use it for anything else (gaming, _ANYTHING_ that requires CUDA rendering), you're SOL.

    thanks for all the input, after looking I agree about the screen size and i'll to find larger first.

    Also wanted to ask what do yall think about the difference between the 250GB SSD and the 500GB SSD? All i plan on using this for is djing and some production. On some models it's a $100-$300 difference in prices between the two...havent bought an SSD before, just know it's supposed to be better, but do I really need the 500GB?

    This has been suggested instead for djing and production.
