The Possibilities are Endless…So is the Screen.


Warwick based notebook manufacturer rockdirect has today announced a new stylish portable PC targeted towards users who demand a total mobile computing solution for work or play. The new design-conscious addition to the Pegasus series, the Pegasus DTS strikes the optimum balance between wireless mobility and entertainment and will start at a selling price of £999 excluding Vat.

In addition to being the ultimate business tool for productive computing on the go, the Pegasus DTS is a notebook for entertainment on the move thanks to an exciting feature list that simply cannot be found on other Centrino notebooks. The new Pegasus DTS combines Intel® Centrino™ Mobile Technology with a high definition WXGA widescreen 15.4” TFT display, and a superior 5 speaker sound system, including a built-in sub woofer as standard. So not only is it designed to maximise wireless mobility, Pegasus DTS can work and play as hard as its user wants it to. So whether users want to connect to the office anywhere anytime, or watch their favourite DVD movies on the go, the Pegasus DTS will fulfil all computing requirements.

The most desirable mobile computing technologies have been incorporated into the Pegasus DTS which also plays host to a DVD recorder, compatible with the widely accepted DVD -R/-RW formats. This means that over 4GB of valuable data can be backed up in one go, or over two hours of full multimedia content. And that’s without the need to plug anything else into the machine. The machine is feature enhanced further by the built in video camera module, which comes as standard. So whether users wish to have a casual chat with friends via Microsoft Messenger or a videoconference for business, the Pegasus DTS with integrated wireless capabilities will enable users to go online and communicate anytime, anywhere.

"A business notebook, need not be a boring notebook,” says Nick Boardman, Managing Director of rockdirect. "The Pegasus DTS incorporates the latest Intel Centrino Mobile Technology to provide business users with performance and seamless wireless connectivity whilst on the move and the Widescreen format affords the running of multiple applications or impressive spreadsheets. The awesome screen and 5 speaker sound system will also provide road warriors with a high-quality multimedia experience, the ideal escapism from tiresome commuting and hotel stopovers. Up to 4.5 hours battery life ensures enough power to get through a full-length feature DVD and to get some work done as well.”

• Intel® Pentium® M processor (up to 1.7Ghz)
