Rock reveals 13.3in entertainment laptop line

Powerful yet portable, maker maintains

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

UK notebook specialist Rock has extended its Pegasus range with an entertainment-centric yet highly portable line based on Intel's mobile Core 2 Duo processor - overclocked when running on mains power - and a 13.3in, 1,280 x 768 widescreen display.

The Pegasus 335 series comprises three models: the T56, T72 and T74, based on the 1.83GHz, 2GHz and 2.16GHz Core 2 Duos, respectively. The bottom-of-the-range model's CPU contains 2MB of L2 cache - the rest have 4MB.

Rock said the machine will deliver five per cent more processor cycles when connected to the mains than it does on batteries. The machines also have a 'silent' mode that turns off the fans and clocks back the CPU accordingly.

The T56 ships with 512MB of 533MHz DDR 2 SDRAM, while the T72 and T74 comes with 1GB of memory. All three 335s incorporate Intel's GMA 950 integrated graphics engine, 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi, a dual-layer DVD writer, Gigabit Ethernet, a four-in-one memory card reader, and a Firewire port.

They all ship with a digital TV tuner, and provide instant-on access to TV, music and movie content.

Available now direct from Rock, the Pegasus 335 line is priced from £849 inc VAT. ®
