Rock Pegasus P665-T76 Core 2 Duo laptop

Rough diamond?

Security for virtualized datacentres

There are a total of three USB 2.0 ports - two on the left and one on the right - a four-pin FireWire port; a card reader that accepts SD, MMC and various Memory Stick formats; an Express Card 54 slot; and DVI and s-video screen ports. All these connectors as well as the Ethernet connector are located on the right-hand side of the chassis, bar two of the USB ports which are on the left. Finally, around the back is the modem connector. At the front is an on/off switch for the wireless antenna.

The keyboard is fairly well laid out and the keys are quite comfortable to type on. The touchpad can be disabled via a small switch just below the keyboard. It also has a widescreen layout to match the screen and a scroll area on the right of it.

Size-wise the Pegasus P665-T76 measures 36 x 27 x 3.7cm and weighs 3.1kg - not something you'd want to lug around with you for too long, but not overly heavy for its size.

Our review model was a special edition model with a Cannonball 8000 Porsche lid, as Rock was part of the Cannonball 8000 race this year. It has to be said that the print wasn't too nicely attached and the finish was poor. I'd give it a miss, even though it doesn't cost anything extra to add it.

The few rough edges on our review sample included a poorly fitted optical drive and a USB port that seemed to have been attacked by a screwdriver - not what you expect to see. But apart from this there weren't any real issues with the machine.
