Rock intros new notebooks

UK-based gaming notebook manufacturer Rock on Tuesday announced the addition of two new models to its Xtreme line, including the 17-inch 790 and 18.4-inch 840, with either good for 1920x1080 resolution. Both sport options for NVIDIA's new 1GB GeForce GTX 280M graphics card, a Blu-ray drive and as much as 6GB of RAM. The Xtreme 840 can even be equipped with two GTX 280M cards. Users can opt for three 500GB drives that can be set up in a RAID configuration for 1.5TB of storage.

A range of Intel's new Core i-7 processor powers either model, though clock speeds or specific numbers have not been announced. The Xtreme 840 can also be had with a Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Quad processor. The 840 sports a touchpad for controlling volume and other functions, along with eight customizable gaming-dedicated buttons and choice between seven colors of LED accent lighting.

Common features include HDMI outputs, four USB 2.0 ports, Wi-Fi, a 7-in-1 card reader and the preloaded Vista Home Premium operating system that can be upgraded for free to Windows 7 once the new OS is launched.

The Rock Xtreme 790 starts at the equivalent of $3,259 in Europe, with the single and dual GPU Rock Xtreme 840 models starting at $2,770 and $3,748, respectively. These prices include applicable taxes, and all three models are due out before the end of July.
