Hiya, I’m thinking of selling my HP4125sa laptop on eBay, as I’m buying a more beefy laptop for Rekordbox, a DJ software which is very slow and laggy on my current laptop.

So how much should I sell my HP for? Is in perfect condition, with original box and charging lead.

Also, what laptop would you recommend I get for Rekordbox?

I’m happy with going second hand (as it’s cheaper haha!) And if you’re going to link something make sure it’s from a UK site as that’s where I’m from.

All responses are much appreciated, Ajsski99

I work with audio so I'm at least somewhat capable of answering this.

You'll want to look for something with an i7 quad core, 16GB or more of RAM, and an SSD as your main boot disk.

Thanks for the reply

I have just bought a DJ controller, speakers, headphones, laptop stand, and speaker stand.
So right now I don't have very much money left to spend.
I was hoping I could use the money from my HP laptop to go towards the price of the laptop.

my gaming PC can run the software fine, I have an Ivy bridge i5 and 16GB of RAM.

Only saying as higher tier laptops with top of the line hardware tend to make them very expensive.

Thanks, Ajsski99

Okay, so it's pretty limited budget.

Honestly, almost anything on the market would be an upgrade to what you have now. I'd personally recommend looking into one of those new Ryzen Mobile notebooks. Plenty of processing power, plus on a lot of them upgradeable RAM.

Thanks, anything else you’d recommend that is sub £500?
