Does Abelton Live 9 run well on a MacBook Air?

Thinking of getting an Air as I travel a lot and wanted to ask - how much processor/ram/whateva do I need to get with it?


Any thoughts would be really helpful.

Thanks guys.

    I have been using Ableton Lite for the last 2 months and it's working great with my Macbook Air Early 2015, 8 GB RAM. I'm using right now Windows 10(Parallels) and Live(running directly on Mac Os High Sierra) with 3 VSTs(Arturia Analog Lab) without any hassle. If you plan to use it live, then keep it as slim as you can, with nothing else running on start.

    Anything higher than these requirements should do:
