1 Beyond, a leading provider of digital video editing and compositing systems, today announced 1 Beyond GoFlex317 HD, the industry’s first laptop capable of hardware RAID 5 protection with High Definition level performance. Available now for $6995 for a fully featured system, the GoFlex317 HD is ideal for broadcasters and post-production crews working remotely with the latest HD formats who cannot afford to lose data but need the agility of a laptop solution.


The rest of the system isn't bad either: DVI output for driving a second monitor at 1,920 by 1,200 pixels, support for up to 4 GB of RAM, gigabit Ethernet, four USB 2.0 ports, and FireWire port, Dolby Surround Sound with four speakers, 7.1 192 KHz/32-bit audio, 7-in-1 card reader, an 8× dual-layer DVD burner, and an Express Card slot. 1 Beyond will fit out the system with WIndows XP or Vista, and Adobe Creative Suite 3, Avid Express Pro with Mojo, and Grass Valley Edius are available as bundled software.

Of course, the GoFlex317 is intended for on-the-go high-definition video production and post-production work, not LAN parties, and carries a starting price tag in line with those purposes. Of course, the company might Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme versions for a slightly lower price. Might be worth asking.

And if the GoFlex317 doesn't satisfy serious notebook fans…1 Beyond also makes military grade ruggedized notebooks.
