As you can see from the data above - the Rock Xtreme Ti is claiming its right as a Gaming Notebook. It does have some explosive power behind it - as well as the some of the best 'looks' you're ever see at a LAN party!

Its power comes from a 3.4GHz Intel Pentium 4 Extreme processor coupled with 1024MB DDR SDRAM and a 60GB hard drive. Perhaps, the most important to gamers, the ATi Mobility Radeon 9700 graphic sub-system with 128MB of its own memory.

The display is a 15-inch TFT X-Glass with resolutions up to 1,400 x 1,050, with the screen being backlit from two sources - giving a sharper control of light.

The sound system is good and the keyboard is adequate. And the Ti Extreme has all the standard connections including an Internal Gigabit LAN (RJ45), 15-Pin VGA, S-Video, PS/2 External Mouse or Keyboard, four USB 2.0 IEEE 1394 port, 25-Pin EPP / ECP, Internal 56k Modem (RJ11), 802.11g Internal Wireless LAN , and Bluetooth Module.

All RockDirect products come with a 'peace of mind' three year 'collect and return' warranty. UK Laptops.

The only major drawback is battery life, a system supporting all this power and all these features will only give you a mere 45 minutes. This is not a mobile notebook.

Gamers should know that the Xtreme Ti is designed with the future in mind - you have the ability to upgrade your graphics processor unit with new graphics cards as they come onto the market. The Xtreme Ti should allow for years of gaming enjoyment at the highest performance level possible.

Gamers should put this machine on their list when picking the top 'mobile desktop'!

Battery Life: Mere 45 minutes

Size: 325mm Width X 275mm Height X 50mm Depth (1 inch = 25.4mm!)

Cons: Short battery life, some have noted active fans and a small amount of heating.

Pros: High End gaming notebook, stylish design and presentation, powerful performance.

Conclusion: Battery life put to one side, this is an acceptable stylish gaming notebook that may satisfy more than a few gamers - even given the fact that gamers are a hard crowd to please.
