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.
