Which Laptop Is Best For DJing?

So, which laptop is best for live DJ use?  Answer: the one that works.  I know this is another area of DJing where DJs tend to disagree, since we all have our perspective camps and brands.  A strong argument has been made in favor of Macbooks or the Macbook Pro, since the likelihood of OSX crashing is far less than a Windows machine – but this doesn’t mean that a Mac can’t freeze up; they can as well.

A better way to approach this question is to look at laptops being sold right now, and figure out what combination of hardware works best.  After all, it’s the sum of the parts that make the computer.
