rock Xtreme 770 X9000-8800 gaming notebook
Honestly, my feelings about the rock Xtreme 770 are a bit mixed. On the one hand, the Xtreme 770 offers very good gaming performance, application performance and comes with some nice extras and a good warranty. Even the bag that comes bundled with the laptop is nice, though the laptop itself is quite heavyóbut thatís to be expected.
On the other hand though, the battery life wonít let you even get through one two hour film and I still feel that the concept of a gaming laptop is one that hasnít been explored properly yet. Just because it doesnít have a separate monitor, keyboard and speakers doesnít mean that this 17-inch beast suddenly becomes portable!
In the end, for me, itís the gaming performance and overall feel of the Xtreme 770 that makes this laptop a winner Ė this is a machine which feels good to use and some obvious care and attention has obviously gone into the design. rock has even spaced out the USB ports so you can fit multiple devices in without making it a squeeze. The laptop as a whole feels good to use and the gaming performance, while maybe not as good as we had hoped, is more than enough for modern gaming.
It may be expensive and many bit-tech readers may guffaw and pledge continued, undying loyalty to their desktop machines, but the reality is that the rock Xtreme 770 is a very tempting piece of kit and more than capable of any task you might care to throw at it.
