    I love my Dell with the touch screen. I'm getting another one as soon as the budget will allow.

    I use a Dell All-In-One PC with my Small System and really like it too, but I have to ask; of what use is a touch screen? Mine is a touch screen too, but I NEVER touch it. My DJ software (Traktor) is not touch screen enabled, and I doubt Iíd ever need it to be anyway since I mostly use a controller as my interface. I could use the touch interface with Windows 10, but after starting up Traktor, thereís not much that I do in the OS. Besides that, the computer is on the other side of my controller, at armís length from where I stand, so touching the screen is not comfortable or natural. I guess I just find touch screens useless for mobile DJ work.😊

    I use Lenovo but have used Dell in the past. They're both fine so long as the drivers are stable.

    If you're going to do anything with a PC (desktop) I would highly recommend building one yourself. It's a fun hobby and you end up with something that is much easier to customize and upgrade as needed.

    Been using 2 University Surplus Dell latitude E6450 Laptop PCs (back lit keyboard) with the i5, 8 gig of Ram plus a 512GB SSD for the main and DJ Music.
    I also replaced the DVD drive with a HDD adaptor and a regular 5400rpm 1TB Drive for all my Karaoke tunes.
    There's a 3rd one set up the same way as these but it only has a 14.1 screen
    All have a Magnesium Chassis and are very rugged although a little heavy.

    All Music is identical in all and with virtual DJ I just copy over the Database etc. to all 3.

    Thanks for the reply's.

    I always thought Dell weren't that great but I guess that was back in the day.

    Dell and HP have always been OK they just make it very difficult to DIY upgrade like Apple.
    But most people never upgrade the parts inside their laptops.

    I used an HP Envy for a long time. Now I use a Dell because my HP Envy had an issue with one of the keys so I sent it off to be repaired. The key thing is to get as much processing power and memory as you can afford.
