You will need the MacBook Pro with 2.2 GHz processor and 8 Gigs of RAM. You MUST have a 7200 rpm drive, this is most critical as you pull samples and songs from your hard drive. You can get away with a 2.0 processor but I wouldn't recommend less than 8 Gigs RAM.
On another note the MacBook (White) should be sufficient as a DJ laptop since they now have the previous MB Pro chips but you cant get the 7200 rpm drive. It really depends on what you are interfacing with the computer, how many tracks you have going/need and whether or not you are doing any composition to create your live sets.
The MacBook Pro will meet your needs and then some. The only must is a 7200 rpm hard drive and enough RAM to not worry about spikes during song transitions or whenever your track number peaks. If you're a pro you need MacBook Pro.
