Does it not hurt when you get hit on the head with a laptop?

You have to ask the others - I won ! 8)
I won, because I am "well equipped". My Acer is
about two and a half year old and everyone who
sees it says "wow, this is huge !".

Noooo, I´m kidding.
The battle looked like this:

It's not the medium, ultimately, it's the skills that pay the bills =)

Surprisingly most of the laptop DJs I know locally use PCs too. Wasn't until recently with the MacBook's that Mac's were actually decently affordable with good power IMO.

So are you coming to Seattle for the big laptop battle competition they do?

I think I read somewhere they're bringing all the laptop champions up here or something like that?

If you do come up hit me up - then I'd have a reason for actually going to the battle <--> never been

but yeah, good job getting jiggy with your laptop


Contrary to internet belief - a lot of people use PC's to make and perform music


peace
