Reviews for the Rock Xtreme 685-I5-2540M

80% Rock Xtreme 685 Review
Source: Stuff TV English
Its big weight and low battery life limit the Xtreme 685, and if you're after a general purpose laptop you can get better built models for much less. What you won't find, however, is a better specced games machine for a similar price. Thanks to an excellent screen, great processor and exceptionally powerful graphics, it may not be pretty, but it's got a mean punch.

We can't help feeling that the Rock is expensive at £1249, though it does have an excellent graphics card and screen. We'd have liked to have seen a BD drive to expand the multimedia possibilities of this laptop. We've no complaints about the Core i5 processor or 6GB of RAM, but the battery life is a let-down.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.1 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


Rock: Rock is a British laptop manufacturer and focusses the UK market.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
