Reviews for the Rock Xtreme 780

60% Rock Xtreme 780 Q9000
Source: English
More and more households are now using laptop PCs rather than desktops as the main computer in the house and so there's a need for laptops that are as powerful as their desktop cousins, or more so, especially those designed for games players. The Rock Xtreme 780 Q9000 is a games players' computer, but although it's technically portable its size and bulk mean that it's unlikely ever to leave the house once it arrives. A superb games computer, but fan noise was very annoying and it costs a fair whack
