most ppl have told me get a macbook, but i want 1 with a 17" screen and refuse pay the amounts that macbooks cost, around £1600 for a 17" one.
now ive been looking at these 2 laptops, HP Pavillion DV7-6103ea or Samsung RC720
both around £700 or so is the cheapest ive found
is just to do general things on it, watch movies/blu-ray, plus running vdj or traktor pro (digital dj software), both need around 4gb to run smoothly
any alternatives are appreciated, but no more than £750 in total
I know it might sound blasphemous but have you considered an apple laptop? I know my friends (and many djs/producers) who use dj software prefer them. I run VDJ on my ASUS desktop just fine - no operational issues at all.
but I'm also in the market and am considering an ASUS laptop - I hope it has the processing power for vdj or Traktor
also: what do you dj/produce?
