The Rock Xtreme will feature up to Intel® Core™ i7 Extreme processor i7-975 4 x 3.33GHz, 8MB Cache, 1366MHz - now that's packing some quad power!

It will also feature NVIDIA 280M GTX 1GB GDDR3 graphics card with up to 6GB of DDR3 RAM. Full HD 17-inch display and three 7,200rpm hard drives (RAID mode) which gives you a massive 1.5 TB of memory.

Now the Rock Xtreme 840 has a 18.4-inch display and comes with slighly more options: Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Quad processors and the option of dual NVIDIA GTX 280M GPU.

Both gaming rigs will sport Wi-Fi connectivity, four USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI slot and a 7-in-1 card reader. Both will have Windows Vista with a free upgrade to Windows 7 in October.

As for prices - the Xtreme 790 will be roughly 1,999 pounds (around $3,258 at today’s rate) while the Xtreme 840 goes for 1,699 pounds (around $2,769). Check site for exact prices and specs.
