Professionals who are into DJing or music production require devices with top of the line specifications such as a super-fast processor, large RAM, high-quality sound systems, and large internal storage. Such features prove to be quite useful, especially when it comes to making last-minute changes in your work. The laptops we have listed below check all the boxes when it comes to creating and editing audio, even on the go. Check them out!

Apple MacBook Pro

When it comes to laptops that are specially made for music production, the Apple MacBook Pro is certainly one of the best options out there. The Touch Bar at the keyboard’s top allows you to multitask as much as you want since it changes the functions based on the app that is being used. This proves quite useful in switching between apps, which can lead to quicker work for DJs. When it comes to hardware, you get a 9th gen 8-core Intel Core i9 Processor, AMD Radeon Pro 5500M graphics with GDDR6 memory and 1TB ultra-fast storage, which should make running the device a good experience. The 6-speaker system with force-canceling woofers should ensure that you can hear every note with clarity while creating a new track. Additionally, the device comes with an 11-hour battery life according to the company, letting you use it at gigs without worrying about charging points. There are also Thunderbolt 4 ports that help you connect other devices like speakers.

Dell XPS 15 (9570)

Looking for a premium laptop that is both lightweight and stylish? You can have a look at this offering from Dell. Backed by an 8th Generation Intel Core processor, 16GB RAM with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti 4GB Graphics card and a 512GB SSD storage, this device should give you enough ammunition to perform sound and video editing quite easily. This is particularly beneficial for DJs who want to create their own music videos and promote their content on YouTube. When it comes to the display, the laptop is equipped with a 15.6-inch anti-glare screen which should ensure your visuals are crisp, dynamic and life-like, thanks to the Dell PremierColor software. Plus, the laptop is extremely lightweight, weighing a mere 1.8kg, which means you can carry it to your gigs without feeling like it’s a burden. Do keep in mind that the laptop has a touchscreen – simply swipe, pinch or click the items on display!

ASUS TUF Gaming laptop

Gaming laptops can prove to be a worthwhile investment for DJs as they not only are equipped with a massive internal memory but are typically also accompanied by a good system and great graphics. When it comes to storage, this device sports a massive 1TB HDD in addition to 256GB SSD, letting you store all your tracks as well as music and video editing software. It also has an 8GB RAM that’s extendable up to 32GB and a 4GB NVIDIA graphics card. This is likely to support your editing requirements no matter how demanding they may be. The company has also kept aesthetics in mind and equipped the laptop with a backlit RGB keyboard, which should make it easier to spot the right keys in dark nightclubs while you’re playing a set. Finally, when it comes to sound, the laptop is equipped with DTS Headphone: X technology which should deliver theatre-quality sound while using headsets – a must for individuals in the music industry.

Apple MacBook Air

The device sports a 5th gen Intel core i5 processor and has a solid 8GB RAM, which should make running every task you may need to create great tracks quite simple. For music enthusiasts, connectivity is a big issue. To solve their demands, the laptop comes with two Thunderbolt 3 ports and three USB ports, making connecting it to music consoles of your choice very easy.
