I have a (IT) problem

  1. Research a topic or group of topics
  2. Create a course outline
  3. For each lesson — create the slide-based content, any code, and prepare any demos
  4. Record the lesson (screencast) — either slides+talking, or demo (recording of me creating or doing something)
  5. Edit the recordings, tidy up, and re-record if needed
  6. Generate MP4 files from the raw screen recordings
  7. Upload the MP4 to cloud storage and the learning management platform its going to be hosted on (I currently do all my work for acloud.guru go check them out)
  1. I would like to use one machine for all-of-the-above, I work with large files and keeping multiple machines in sync is a pain.
  2. I would like to have the flexibility to work from anywhere, either between my two spaces at home & remote, anywhere where I am.
  3. Based on #2 — traveling with the device(s) has to be easy — lightweight ?
  4. I need sufficient screen real-estate that recording my screencasts or demos isn't impacted — suggests a larger screen
  5. I need to be able to convert between screencast & MP4 quickly and efficiently — CPU/Memory & storage speed is important.
  6. I need a few essential peripherals — USB microphone, and a nice comfortable mouse.
