Rock rolls out dual-core Intel, AMD laptops

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.

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.
