Founded in June 1992, notebook manufacturer rockdirect (formerly known as Rock Computers) is one of the largest and most respected manufacturers of leading edge mobile notebook technology in the UK.

At its manufacturing facility in Warwick, rockdirect design and support a complete range of inspiring notebook computers for Consumers, Businesses and Education Establishments.

Thirteen years ago Rock entered the notebook market with the launch of their NP-1O1 notebook, featuring a 16MHz 386SX CPU, 1Mb RAM, 20Mb HDD and an 8.5" mono LCD. It was to be the first of many milestones in Rock's history with their inspiration driving many of the major advances in notebook technology.

In addition to continued technological innovation in the portable computing market, rockdirect is the only notebook manufacturer to supply a 3 year (insurance backed) collect and return warranty on it's entire notebook range as standard, ensuring it offers the most comprehensive after sales service of any notebook manufacturer.

Apart from rock solid service and support, we have always had a reputation for being industry innovators in technological breakthroughs. If you were to look at the history of the notebook computer, it would look very much like a list of our achievements.

In 1993 rock was one of the 5 founding members of the PCA, a trade organisation set up to ensure fair play and good business practice in the IT Industry.

Thinking out of the box, rockdirect are investing heavily in the research and development of notebooks that will re-write the future of notebook history.

Some may call it a total notebook solution - we call it inspired technology.
