Rock rolls out dual-core Intel, AMD laptops

High performance access to file storage

UK PC maker Rock this week unveiled a pair of dual-core notebooks, one based on Intel technology, the other on an AMD processor. Both sport Nvidia's GeForce Go 7600 graphics chip and other refinements.

The Pegasus 660 is the Intel machine. It's equipped the recently released 2.33GHz Core Duo T2700. The screen's a 15.4in 1,280 x 768 job with a glossy sheen arising from the colour-boosting coating.

The 660 can be configured with up to 2GB of 533MHz DDR 2 and up to 120GB of SATA hard disk storage. So can the 2GHz AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-60 based Quaddra TX2. The second notebook has a 17in, 1,680 x 1,050 screen, this time with an integrated 1.3 megapixel webcam.

Both laptops ship with three USB ports, one Firewire port, 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a four-in-one card reader. Both are equipped with a DVD±R/RW drive - with dual-layer support in the case of the 660.
