    Question Rock or Rizeon or Zepto?

    Have been drooling over a Rock Pegasus 670 for a month now, but they've been having loads of teething problems, esp with battery drain & keyboard quality. They have good customer service, from that I can see on the forums.

    then someone on the Rock forums mentioned Rizeon and Zepto. They all seem to be pretty similar spec, though these 2 suppliers are cheaper than Rock. Unfortunately neither has a forum, so no idea what their customer service is like. Heard Zepto is BAAAD on the grapevine.

    anyone got experience to share about either of them? Spending about 1000-1200, so not a small amount

    specifically:
    Rizeon FL90
    Zepto 6625WD

    possibly some build quality issues with the Zepto, and don't partic like the C/C charge (35 quid! ouch!)

    wanting:
    T7500 cpu
    1680x1050 res (Rizeon is only 1440 x 900 otherwise would be best deal)
    8600GT 512MB
    2GB mebbe 4GB
    64 bit Vista
    etc

    what say you? any feedback much appreciated. Will be primarily for video editing & after effects work (thus the 4GB)

    Re: Rock or Rizeon or Zepto?

    They are both good laptops. Rizeon have good CS from what i've seen..had a few chats with them

    Zepto do have a forum at notebookreview here

    http://forum.notebookreview.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1032

    there are UK representives from zepto in there.

    Can't go wrong with either to be honest just pick the one you like the most. I know the rizeon with the 512mb geforce is on pre order at the moment though so could be a long wait.

    Re: Rock or Rizeon or Zepto?

    I would get a Rizeon - customer service is second to none. They do student discount of 3%, and if you ask a sales rep he can upgrade you to a 9 Cell battery for £15 or give you an extra 9 Cell battery for £35 I think... plus cheap insurance backed warranties are awesome. Unfortunately I cancelled my order from them for a Dell Vostro 1500 which had better specs for far cheaper. But they've went up quite a bit in price now so I guess I was lucky to throw the order in when I did.
