    Default Traktor / Serato - is 4gb of memory enough?

    So i'm toying with upgrading my laptop.

    Current machine is an old 2009 MacBook Pro (2.54 GhZ core 2 duo). It still runs fine, & i've upgraded it to the max over the years, (2tb drive in the DVD bay, maxed out memory, SSD boot drive etc), but it's starting to get a bit long in the tooth.

    I'm considering a MacBook Air from apple's refurb store, but most of the models on there only have 4 Gb of memory.

    So my main question is, will Traktor &/or Serato run happily with only 4 gb of memory? ....the spec on the websites say "yes", but i'd like some real world answers from people running similar machines.
    Cheers

    Until very recently (like a few weeks ago), I ran Traktor on a laptop with a 32 bit centrino2 processor and 3GB of ram (HP Elitebook 8530w). No problems at all. Being a 32 bit computer, only 2GB was really accessible for applications. For 64 bit you'll need more ram than for a 32 bit system, but 4GB is fine.

    It'll only really become an issue when you're producing or using things like Maschine in your set. Traktor is not that heavy.
