Announced: Rock Pegasus 210

Rock Pegasus 210 Yesterday, Rock Direct announced the Rock Pegasus 210, a widescreen 12.1″ WXGA ultraportable laptop.

The interesting thing is that it’s using an 800MHz Intel A110 CPU. This low-voltage CPU is normally found in smaller devices like the Fujitsu LifeBook U810. By using this CPU, and doing away with an internal optical drive (there is an optional USB-powered external drive, similar to the Apple MacBook Air), they are able to get the dimensions and weight down substantially, to a thickness of 1.18 – 0.55 inches / 14 – 30 mm, and a weight of 1kg (2.2 pounds). This also allows for a battery life of around 6 hours, according to Rock Direct.

The pricing is not bad, given the design and features: £799.00 ex VAT (@ $1580 USD), and Rock Direct is taking orders. Availability outside of Europe is unknown.

Thanks to Dan for the info.
