    Novatech Laptops

    Hey guys i had ordered a rock notebook but decided to cancel as i wanted to get a bit more money together to get an 8800m GTX. However was jsut on the novatech website and they seem to have similar specs alot cheaper and still comes with 2 years warranty.

    So is there something wrong with them lol?

    X80R T7500 17" WUXGA - INTEL CORE 2 DUO T7700 2.4GHZ 2GB DDR2 NVIDIA 8800M GTX 512MB GRAPHICS 250GB SATA HDD DVDRW - NO O/S : nnb-589

    Rocks comparison is here

    rock :: Xtreme 770 :: Ultimate performance gaming laptops and notebooks

    Big price difference in my opinion for what seems to be the same laptop.

    Home Entertainment =BenQ W1070, Samsung 65" HDTV, Denon AVRX6300H, Playstation 3 and Monitor Audio Silver RX 5.0, Monitor Audio CT265IDC(x4) Dolby Atmos and XTZ 12.17 Sub
    My System=Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming 7 Wi-Fi, AMD Ryzen 7 2700X, Patriot 16 GB DDR4 3200MHz, 256GB Crucial SSD, Kingston 256GB SSD and 500GB Samsung F3, Palit GTX1070 GameRock Edition , Enermax Liberty 620W, Akasa Eclipse-32,Dell 2715H & Dell U2311H
    Home Server 2/HTPC - HP Gen 8 with 4GB ram, Windows 7 Pro and Crucial M4 128GB SSD, MSI AMD R7 240 2GB, 2x WD Red 3TB 1x 2TB WD Black running XBMC
    Diskstation/HTPC - Synology DS2415+ with 18TB
    Tablet=Microsoft Surface Pro 4 & Huawei M5 10"

    Re: Novatech Laptops

    The main differences I notice right away are the Rock comes with a HD DVD drive rather than standard DVD and it is also a newer cpu revision which has a more efficient 45nm architecture which means less heat which can only be a good thing in a laptop. It also has a 7200rpm hard drive the Novatech one doesnt say the speed so I would assume 5400rpm but it is bigger!

    I also notice the novatech says (on he page you linked) it has a 12 month not 2 years return to base warranty Rock provide 3 years and provide collect and delivery.

    The Rock is also slightly lighter and thinner if that is important.

    Personally the only things in that list that would be important to me are the newer CPU, better warranty and weight/size. If they are worth £300 i don't know!
