Rockdirect has introduced another model with a widescreen display, but instead of being a games machine, it’s a portable device. The Pegasus DTS (from £1174 inc.VAT) features a 15.4-inch TFT WXGA screen that displays 1280 x 800 pixels with a PC camera fixed into the top. It also has enhanced sound with five speakers, including an integrated sub-woofer. However, in spite of these features, the company has tried to keep it portable by incorporating Intel’s Centrino mobile technology. Although it’s a large chassis, the specified weight of 2.5kg suggests Rockdirect has succeeded.
The range uses Intel Pentium M processors up to 1.7Ghz also utilising Intels 802.11b WLAN card and the 855GM chipset’s integrated graphics. A DVD-R/RW drive is an option, replacing the standard DVD/CD-ROM combo, and fixed storage goes from 30GG to 80GB. Standard memory allocation is 256MB of DDR SDRAM, with 512MB supplied with the 1.7GHz processor.
