[Jeremy Garchow] "I guess when I say serious, I mean larger, not necessarily CPU cycles. What would change is that I could get a mobile 4k playback rig in a carry-on. This is huge, I wouldn't consider myself a DIT, but I can hold my own. A realtime capture (read, proxy) creator with red raw playback with minimal gear is of huge interest. "

I really do think that 4K playback from a laptop is exciting.

But isn't the itty-bitty DIT cart in your pocket crowd just as niche as the the sizzle core beast crowd?

I work on the road a lot, and I understand the tradeoffs between itty bitty and sizzle core beast very well. Sometimes it's got to fit in a Pelican, sometimes it's got to render in under an hour. Different needs require different tools.

I am glad that Thunderbolt is here to make laptops more capable, but going back to your original post asking about Mac Pros -- once you've done your 4K playback in the field, wouldn't it be nice to have a workstation back in the office that can do more than just play it back?
