Your laptop is probably your everything: from your email to your browser prefs, it's what you use to do what you do.
Unfortunately, that also means installing utilities and managing codecs and paying for thousands of dollars of applications just to deal with your workflow.
After helping out friends with on-set workflow issues, we've come to the conclusion that what you want isn't a personal computer: it's a really boring workstation that already has all the boring stuff done for you already.
The creative suite, FCP, codecs and loaders, REDCINE-X, software and utilities, all already done for you. Just dump your cards and synch your footage and be done with file wrangling when you're done with your shoot.
We've included not just the workstation, but a handy (and fast!) card reader and a mobile RED Rocket with thunderbolt so that you can check footage instantly, regardless of camera: 1080, 2k or 4k.
