The Surface Laptop is a beautiful piece of hardware, but can video editors work with it? Looking at the specifications of the Surface Laptop given to me for testing, I had low expectations. It's not all bad though. The Surface Laptop I'm using in this article is the model with an Intel Core i5 processor, Intel HD 620 graphics, 8GB RAM, and 256GB storage priced at $1,299. For an extra $300, you bump up to Intel Core i7 processor and Intel Iris Plus graphics.
The HP ZBook Studio G4 is a powerful machine for creators squeezed into a sleek laptop. As a video editor who's constantly on the go, I need a portable workstation that can keep up with my workflow. The latest generation of the ZBook Studio from HP satisfies that need. It has specifications that provide excellent performance, and it's not too bulky or heavy to carry around when switching locations. See at HP StoreHardwareLet's start with the design.
HP has built a workstation for designers who value their desk space. The HP Z2 Mini G3 packs the performance of a traditional business-class tower in a case that's a tenth of the size. University computer labs, co-working spaces, or creative professionals looking for workstations in a small form factor will be happy with the Z2 Mini. It couldn't possibly be perfect, but is it worth your wallet's attention?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
