Question Music production - help needed...

Hi all

I'm after some advice on hardware for electronic music production. I've been DJ'ing using vinyl and CDJ's for the past 6 years (deep house / techno / tech house) and I'm upping sticks soon to go backpacking for a year. I was hoping to use this time to teach myself Ableton (or alternative software...I'm open to suggestions)

I'll obviously be at a disadvantage when it comes to having a dedicated studio space and I need to keep all hardware to an absolute minimum (anything I take has to be portable and lightweight so huge monitor speakers and multiple input devices are out then...)

I'm after a macbook/laptop that will handle music production but I'm not necessarily after the latest 2012 models as I'm 90% sure that it will get lost/stolen/dropped/eaten at some point during my trip!

I'm new to production so any guidance and suggestions on macbook/laptop, input devices, software etc. would be great.

Thanks
