Laptop for mobile djing

Mongoose 8:15 PM - 26 September, 2012
So I have budgeted $1200 for a dedicated laptop for mobile djing.. was looking into getting a macbook air but the more I think about it... Since My controller has an external soundcard and the computers these days are so good, maybe it's best to just buy a cheaper computer? I reckon almost any of the computers stores offer these days could handle serato efficiently?

Serato recommends any current Macbook pro /The end

ya but I'm sure that's overkill. Must be guys running it smoothly on less...

I used to use serato like 5 years ago on an old toshiba notebook and it ran fine...

While the choice is ultimately yours , I would suggest you make the smart or recommended decision.

hey is it adviseable to keep 4000 or more songs on your djing laptop or is it better to dj from a hard drive.

4,000? Did u loose almost all of your music?

Software is free but you only get to use the off-line player. When hardware is plugged in it unlocks all the mysteries of the universe!
