If Rock can position this exact specification at, say, £1499 including VAT and delivery we'd be more inclined to look upon it favourably. For £1800+ we'd really be looking at 1GByte DDR400 memory, Mobility Radeon 9700, no more than 3.6kg basic weight, and at least an UXGA (1600x1200) panel. Rock's Xtreme XTR-3.2 laptop is a meaty beast with a meatier price tag. There's better value to be found elsewhere, I'm afraid.
