Rock today announced the latest addition to their line-up of high-performance notebooks and it's the first time a 17-inch laptop has launched in the Pegasus range.

The Pegasus 710 features a 17-inch X-Glass widescreen, NVIDIA 8600M GS graphics, HD DVD drive as standard, an HDMI output and is based on the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors.

Nick Boardman, Rock CEO, says: "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-inch 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 3 year insurance backed warranty as standard.

Connecting the 710 to a HD-Ready TV instantly transforms the laptop into an HD-DVD player, thanks to NVIDIA’s HDCP support and PureVideo technology.
