FRED Laptops

Triage. Acquire. Analyze. Solve.


Portable yet powerful, the Digital Intelligence FRED-L forensic laptop is the perfect solution for triage or detailed forensic analysis work. The latest FRED-L forensic laptop is built using Intel’s hybrid architecture. A 24 core (8 performance, 16 efficiency) i9-13900HX CPU with clocking up to 5.4 GHz provides the power for this high-performing forensic system. 64 GB of PC5-38400 4800 MHz DDR5 RAM is standard. Three internal NVMe drives (500GB, 1TB, 1TB) support operating system and user defined storage. A larger, 17.3 inch Ultra High Definition (3840 x 2160) display provides easier viewing of digital forensic information.


Field or lab. Imaging or analysis. FRED-L laptops outperform the competition.


Great Performance. Awesome Value.


Buying a FRED-L laptop gets you more than just a top-of-the line, high-performance forensic computer. Each FRED-L laptop includes our valuable UltraKit stocked with three UltraBlock write blockers (SATA/IDE, USB3.0, and PCIe), an UltraBlock Forensic Media Card Reader, a Digital Intelligence SATA III to m.2 SSD adapter, a PCIe m.2 SSD adapter, and the Digital Intelligence USB 3.0 drive enclosure with a 2 TB hard-drive. All for the price of the FRED-L laptop.


UltraBlock SAS, UltraBlock FireWire, and IDE adapter kits are available as kit options.


VPER – Kitted for US Special Forces. Available to You.


The Digital Intelligence VPER kits are configured to ensure you are always prepared for the next forensic challenge. At the core of each VPER kit is a FRED-L laptop. Depending upon which version of VPER you choose, you will receive a set of UltraBlock write blockers and Tableau TD4 forensic imager or an UltraBlock 4P portable write blocker and TX1 imaging system. Each VPER includes the very useful Digital Intelligence Forensic Card Reader, adapters, cables, power supplies and assorted tools.


If you need to add software to your VPER kit, we can help. Call or email for assistance in selecting your software — or if you already know which application you need, simply add that to your website shopping cart to generate a quote.


When you aren’t certain what the forensic road ahead will be, it’s reassuring to be traveling with a VPER.


Designed for Use at Digital Crime Scenes


FRED-L’s are built for use at digital crime scenes. Use the FRED-L and the UltraKit v5 to collect and process digital evidence at any crime scene. Simply remove the suspect drive or storage device, connect it to an UltraBlock, and image. FRED-L can then be used to triage, analyze, or process the collected forensic evidence.
