    Im gna buy the DJM-800 so that I can start using loops from ableton in my dj sets, but I dont have a laptop and have no idea about which one I would need,
    Could anyone recomend where to get a laptop that would be cheap (ish)? What spec would i need so that its stable enough to run when im playing out?
    and finally, what soundcard would i need and where should i get it from? would it have to be external or can you get internal ones for laptops?
    Cheers in advance boyos...

    It would depend on your budget for a laptop but my suggestion would be to roll with Apple's. You can't go wrong with that if you want quality. I use an external soundcard by audiophile, it does the job for a reasonable price.
