Recommendations for a new Laptop spec

Post by darrylgould » Sat Apr 02, 2011 3:46 pm


I am looking to buy a new laptop, and could do with some advise.

I currently have a Dell XPS with 4GB of RAM a 500GB 7200 rpm hard drive and an Intel Core Duo CPU T7250 @2.00Ghz. I am running Window 7 Home Premium.

The laptop is 3 years old, and generally it runs really well, but I spend most of my time warping mp3 files in Ableton (for DJing) and I am finding it a little slow when loading the file for warping.

I would therefore like a machine that will warp files faster.

I recently tried warping on an Intel i5 Lenovo laptop, and found the performance to be about the same as my laptop.

My question is: Should I be looking for a machine with a faster processor, more RAM, or something else?

If anyone can recommend a suitable machine under £600 that would be greatly appreciated.
