Available within 48 hours, the company’s Xtreme CTX will be the first laptop in the UK to feature Intel’s new flagship Core Duo T2700 CPU. This processor runs at a speedy 2.33GHz sports a 667MHz Front Side Bus (FSB) and carries a hefty 2MB of cache.


Like any computer however a lappy is only as good as the components around it so enthusiasts will be chuffed to discover this 17in behemoth comes equipped with a 1080p capable WUXGA (1920 x 1200) X-Glass screen, 1GB of DDR2 667MHz RAM and a top of the line nVidia GeForce 7900GTX graphics card with 512MB of RAM. Things don’t stop there either with a 100GB 7,200RPM hard drive, 8x dual layer DVD rewriter, 802.11a/b/g wireless, gigabit LAN and Bluetooth.


Perhaps most impressively the Xtreme CTX T2700 edition comes in at just £1,761.33 including VAT. That’s a lot of dough in normal circumstances before for specs like this it is rather a good deal. As I said, the only fly in the ointment as far as this lappy goes is the impending arrival of Core 2 Duo, but that doesn’t mean you should overlook bargains in the mean time…


”’Update:”’

If you’re looking to train those biceps by dragging this porker around with you then you’ll be pleased to know rock has just completed a deal with Cloud to provide all new customers with a month’s free WiFi access from any of Cloud’s 7,000 hotspots around the UK.
