My daughter uses one of these at school and wants one for Xmas. We can stretch to the Novation Launchpad Mini Mk3.
She is also having a laptop - from richer relatives than us!
The Launchpad comes with free Ableton Live Lite, which I expect will be plenty to get her going.
Quick question: is there anything specific the laptop needs to have, spec-wise, to work well with the Launchpad, or should any fairly economical current laptop do a decent enough job?
