Laptop for Traktor Pro
Iím hoping for some good recommendations for a laptop for digital djíing. I will be downloading and installing the latest version of Native Instruments Traktor Pro and using an external sound card Ė either my existing Native Instruments Audio Kontrol 1, or a more up to date NI sound card (possibly one that has 4 outputs, rather than 2). The main things I am looking for are:
Large HD, possibly 1TB with fast access speed
Most up to date and fast processor that works well with Traktor
Wifi for downloading tunes
Suppose a cd drive might come in handy
Plenty of RAM
Compact overall size
Something reliable that I can gig with and be confident it wonít crash
Thatís it, not bothered about HD screens, cameraís or anything else. I will be making a basic install and disabling everything that is not related to the above.
For various reasons I need something quickly and havenít got time to do the required level of research into this. Iíve used a Compaq laptop with Windows Vista Business since 2008 and it was very stable with Traktor (old version Ė 3.2 I think) until last month when it crapped out.
Budget is £500, Iím willing to go up to £600 for the right machine.
Ideally, Iím looking for someone who djís with Traktor to say, ĎI have xxx, never let me down, buy oneí. Thanks in advance.

Processor I'd consider Intel i5 and and plenty of RAM. When it comes to music I advise an external hard drive. If you not doing any live video stuff then graphics shouldn't be an issue. I know someone who uses Traktor but can't get hold of.
