I saw this laptop in Micro Center. It has a i9 processor with some great specs including 1TB HD. The cost is $3,699. Who willing to spend that much on a laptop to DJ with?

I saw a Lamborghini for $25000.00 down with $2589.00 a month lease payments.
I say a person who can afford that much a month should just buy the vehicle with a full payment and miss monthly payments because anybody who can afford that much for a monthly payment isn't a poor person on a fixed income.

Unless it’s 1 of a very limited run, Everyone knows to not buy a Lamborghini new lol… so you either lease or buy one where the worst of the depreciation has already happened. Rich people aren’t dumb lol.

as far as the computer goes.. if you do a lot of video editing Or heavy processing programs, then yeah it could be beneficial to someone. You can get a MacBook pro close to 10k if you max out the specs. It’s clearly not for the everyday person.

The least payment is just over twice my rent. My point is that a poor person or one like me on a fixed income wouldn't go to the showroom or look online for a vehicle with such a monthly payment.

You just looked at a computer you have no intention of buying. What’s the difference???
You're right. I just looked. The 2 I have work great for me. I was wondering who would buy that laptop. That was the first i9 I even heard of.

Well .. this is a gaming / graphics processing machine, so gamers will buy this. People that need high system speeds and high video performance will buy this.

The i9 has been around since 2017.

That's the first time I saw one. No problem if someone wants to spend that much for a laptop. What I find is some people can't afford certain things and yet will cause themselves hardship because they have to struggle to pay for a thing.

If it’s for business, get a loan… make money, pay it off. If it’s not for business then you don’t “need” it.

Mix, you can get a pretty impressive gaming laptop for $1,400 to $1,895. Pretty good gaming laptops are in this price range. Not cream of the crop, over the top on the specs, but they will handle just about anything you can throw at them. Not needed for deejaying.

This is what I am looking at for my next Laptop. Pretty much a "Dream Machine" for me. It has everything I could ask for in a laptop for what I do, and plenty of power and then some for anything DJ related. It's a great price too for a Costco member which I am a member!




And for only $650 right now this machine is plenty capable for a DJ as well! This is a great deal for a middle of the road laptop. If you don't play any higher memory video games that have come out in like the last 8 years...then this machine would be sufficient, fast enough and even comes with a DVD writer!

I'm looking to replace my main DJ laptop right now. The Macbook Pro I'm looking at is $2,100 from Costco.

Gaming laptops tend to have very high end graphics cards which run the prices up, from what I understand. I'm not much of a computer guy, but the Apple stuff has always served me well in the DJing arena. But my early 2015 edition is starting to show some signs of age and I need at least a couple more years of life out my main machine.

I’ve been playing around with this type of dual screen laptop. Very interesting design. Micro Center only has the I9 configuration on display but that is would be overkill and I’d be worried about possible cooling issues. I’m due for another laptop in a years so I’ll see what out then. As far as pricing my first 386sx desktop computer in 1990 computer was $3600 with a discount. It was for office use only, the next desktop 3 year later I had built for non-linear video editing and burning CDs. It was really crazy back then, you shopped for computers in phonebook size Magazine Called “Computer shopper” There was no internet shopping yet. I just kicked myself now for not buying any Intel, Apple or Microsoft stock. If I had likely I’d be logging in from Hawaii.CE57D100-0DA7-4E87-A2FA-C2432B566D44.jpeg

Do it! Don't think about it, just do it!

I've been watching these also - it's a new 'gizmo' / feature. While it is cool looking, I'm not sure it'll gain traction among normal users. Also, the difference in screen sizes may eventually cause driver issues and while the size difference may be a minimal hit, it is an increased load on the system itself.
