For today’s interactive feature on the Rampant Blog, we want to know what you use for equipment when you work on the road.
We’ve all had to do a little edit at a client site, or work from a hotel room, and – depending on the work you do – it can be interesting or challenging to assemble a good road rig. Heck, it’s next to impossible to lug a giant Mac or PC tower on the road, so what do you choose? Editors, motion graphic designers, demo artists, and product evangelists all need solid road gear and a stable, reliable setup that won’t let us down whether we’re in Tulsa or Toronto.
So there it is. In the comments, leave us a comment with your on-the-road workstation and peripheral choice. Bonus points if you tell us why you chose it, what makes it awesome, or what’s on your wishlist for 2014 and beyond.
I’ll kick us off. On the road I use a 2012 15″ Macbook Pro with Retina Display. The screen is nice, but the fast SSD is the draw. It’s nice and quick. I wish I had the 2013 refresh with a 2GB GPU, but this one does the trick for now. I also never leave home without two 2TB Western Digital portable drives for footage and my Rampant Extreme Drive. That said, a 2014 Mac Pro with a small LCD could be stuck in a Pelican Case pretty easily…maybe in 2015?
Alrighty. Let’s hear from you!
