Warwick 24th October 2007, rock today announced the latest addition to their line-up of high-performance notebooks. Placed between the Pegasus 670 and Xtreme 770, the Pegasus 710 features a 17” X-Glass widescreen, NVIDIA 8600M GS graphics, High Definition DVD and a HDMI output based on the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors.

Starting at £999, the newcomer is based on “more bang for your buck”, making it an ideal all-round productivity and entertainment platform. Nick Boardman, CEO, explained “The Pegasus 710 is about the perfect balance of graphics, processor power and battery life while offering the breath-taking HD-DVD experience on a 17” screen”.

The 710 can be configured with up to a T7700 2.4GHz processor, 2GB DDR2 RAM, 250GB Hard disk drive and it comes with rock’s award winning European 3 year insurance backed warranty as standard. Boardman continued “rock is not just about selling laptops, it’s about the superb customer experience, service and support that goes with them”. What’s more, becoming a proud owner of a rock laptop automatically puts customers in the middle of a huge ever growing community of laptop enthusiasts on

This is the first time a 17” laptop has launched in the Pegasus range, offering high performance at excellent value. Connecting the 710 to a HD-Ready flatscreen TV instantly transforms the laptop into a high-quality HD-DVD player worth over £500. This is thanks to NVIDIA’s HDCP (High Definition Copyright Protection) support and PureVideo technology. A full sized keyboard with num-pad is great for gaming and office applications, and it offers all the connectivity you can ask for.
