The Mantis is a studied predator. It may not be the fastest or strongest predator, but it can still provide plenty of processing power for you video editing needs. A Quad-Core Intel I5-6600K provides the Mantis with its agility. Spec wise it's very similar to the processor in the Anubis, but lacks the Hyper Threading support.

The Mantis is capable of taking on any video editing tasks, it may not be the fastest option, but it's completely capable. At 1,000 it's a great workhorse and is great for anyone starting out in video editing or those who are just looking for a great value option.
