Thanks for your thoughts
Dell link all the 8gb pretty xxxy so looking for a cheaper option ? this computer will only be used for ableton live lite ,novation bass station and v station that all came with Novation Launchkey mini mk 2.
The ableton website lists requirements as muticore processor 4 gb ram 3 gb free disc space but I wanted a users opinion so thanks for your help, it all scared me after reading complaints about the program freezing from other users
I will connect to the internet once to download from ableton site and never connect again and export what I make to a memory stick.
I will probably not download any samples as the virtual instruments are what I need.
I don't care how big the laptop is I just want to be sure it will run it successfully and not be a desktop.
I have just looked on ebay and there is a lot of laptops for sale but i'm still unsure any laptop brands and models recommended ?
