News / Football Focus presenter Dan Walker takes Rock laptop on BBC’s World Cup tour bus


Dan Walker, the BBC sports journalist and presenter of Football Focus, relied on his Rock Xtreme 840 notebook during his World Cup tour of South Africa to communicate with football fans back at home. During the summer tour, in which Walker travelled around South Africa in the famously bright white BBC bus, Walker covered the 2010 FIFA World Cup as part of the BBC sport team. Walker used his Rock laptop for his regular blogging and video editing.

During his World Cup tour, Walker kept in touch with everyone back at home via his blog. As well as these regular updates, Walker kept a video diary and therefore also required a product which could deal with intensive use of video editing software. He specifically requested a laptop with long battery life, a large memory capacity and a full HD screen, as well as the ability to perform fast editing on the move; specifications which could be fulfilled effortlessly by his Xtreme 840 notebook.

Rock manufactures specialist and high-end laptops, with a key focus on gaming and visual experience. The laptops are entirely designed with the user in mind, and showcase the very best in graphics and functionality to enhance the user·s experience.
