Rain Computers has released the follow up to their LiveBook Mobile Audio Workstation line, the LiveBook A2.
The LiveBook A2 (the “A” is for audio, the “2” because it’s the second generation) offers quad-core processing, discrete graphics and the choice of a glossy or matte high resolution 15.6 inch screen. The laptop has been designed ‘to guarantee the performance and stability audio pros and DJs demand during once-in-a-lifetime recording sessions, live shows and other situations where failure is not an option’.
The LiveBook A2 is available with a quad-core processor up to 2.5GHz, the option to add 16 gigabytes of memory, the NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M graphics processor that can be switched off via a button on LiveBook to save battery power when you’re stuck on an airplane, and a bevy of high speed ports including USB 3.0 and eSATA.
The LiveBook A2 is certified for use with Pro Tools for audio production, Serato for DJs and the Adobe Master Collection.
Pricing starts at US $1599.
