    depends what OS you wanna use. for windows ASUS is pretty much one of the best brands. on the apple side....well there is not moch choice all MBPs will do.

    EDIT: i'm using a Sony VAJO and it works fine for me with Serato.

    i have a mac served me well, 5 years stable, until i spilled a cup of ice tea on the keyboard. still works stable enough for at home, but i wouldn't take it out. pc's are cool, but i am nowhere near computer savvy enough (i know pretty much nothing) to keep my pc running smoothly or make it sleek enough with all the crap that came with it.

    Apple laptops are very fool proof and don't need maintenance to run very stable. you could make a windows pc run just as stable, but it would take a lot of tuning and maintenance

    Macbook pro's to be safe. If you're stuck on windows PC's then yea I had an Asus that always treated me good, ADK laptops are supposed to be nuts for all audio http://www.adkproaudio.com/laptop3.asp but they are basically as expensive as a Apple, Elitebook's are also awesome. I have an Elitebook, it's tremendous for production, doesnt break a sweat DJ'n, and it's built like a tank. They start around 800-900 for a 15.6", but they have smaller.

    I was gonna say "in before someone mentions lots of tuning and maintenance for Windows" but someone already has.

    All we need now is an "I went from a $300 Dell laptop to a Macbook Pro that cost $1,200 and guess what, the Macbook was better!!" post and we've covered most of the bases, lol.

    Traktor S4 user here… I tried SONY, HP, Lenovo, Toshiba, Dell (i5 core or i7 core) with windows 7 professional edition and machines were fully or partially config'ed for sound performance… None of them worked as smooth as any of the the MBP 15"s i am currently using. Running on Lion now with zero issue. I believe leopard is better as the machines ran cooler and stay very cool after long usage.

    I would vote for MacBook Pro over Windows OS laptop any day.

    Can someone make an "Official Laptop Comparison" thread or something of that nature so we don't have this whole Mac Vs PC thing over and over again...
