OVERVIEW

Mobile audio workstation.

Generation 2: LiveBook, only better
The new LiveBook A2 is tested and certified for use with your favorite creative apps from Pro Tools for the musically inclined to Serato for the DJ lurking inside you. Find yourself in a place where the technology is taken care of and all you have to do is play. This is what it's like when your laptop can keep up with your creativity.

Your plug-ins will thank you
We didn't just put out another laptop, we rewrote the book on what it means to be a mobile audio workstation. Quad-core power, discrete NVIDIA GeForce graphics, room for 16GB of memory and a new high res glossy or matte display, nothing else even comes close. You want more tracks, more plug-ins and more virtual instruments without being tied to your studio like the old days? Then you want LiveBook A2.

Welcome to tech support for creative people
In addition to the complimentary 1 year RainCare Technical Support and Warranty, your Rain also includes a free Rain Ensemble Plug & Play session. During your session you can ask for help with anything outside of the computer. We can install your gear, tune your system for the best performance or help with issues that fall into the "grey area" between your computer, software and hardware.

FEATURES
  • Designed for audio production and DJ with software like Pro Tools and Serato
  • Powerful Core i7 "Ivy Bridge" quad-core processor and up to 16GB of memory
  • Brand new hi-res 15.6" backlit LCD display powered by NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M
  • USB 3.0 and eSATA for high speed streaming to your audio interface and external drives

Ideal for the producer on-the-go. Order today.

    Comments about Rain Computers Livebook A2 2.3GHz Intel Core i7 Quad-Core:

    Too bad Rain didn't survive after the destruction of Hurricane Sandy. One of the best companies around for support and all around quality. Every system was hand built and tested prior to being shipped and if you had an issue they were there 24/7 whether it was tuning protools or or a hardware issue they got you taken care of. I doubt we will see another computer manufacturer this good anytime soon for the music industry. Outstanding hardware backed by their custom tuned version of Windows 7 made for the best computers i've ever laid my hands on. Top notch in every way.

    Comments about Rain Computers Livebook A2 2.3GHz Intel Core i7 Quad-Core:

    My Rain was supposed to be under warranty. After owning it for 2 months it quit charging. I went to the websit and it was no longer there. I called the phone number and its disconnected or something. If you buy this product and its defective you are screwed. Go with a name brand you know. I am paying for repairs on a comp that is supposed to be under warranty!
