Rockdirect Xtreme Ti review

Price when reviewed

Keyboard quality is a touch disappointing. Although it feels solid, there’s a slight lack to the key depth, and the left Shift key is frustratingly small. Layout is otherwise reasonable, but would-be novelists would do better with an external keyboard. The trackpad performs well, although it’s likely to be bypassed with a mouse for gaming anyway.

But that’s our only complaint. There’s an impressive port count that includes two mini-FireWire, four USB 2, DVI-I, S-Video, gigabit Ethernet and Bluetooth, as well as a 7-in-1 card reader. The basic design for the chassis has been around for a while, though, as evidenced by the closely packed USB ports (which are also upside-down) and the annoying rubber bung that provides dust protection for the card reader.

But these are mere trifles in a machine designed primarily for power. In an era where laptop prices are tumbling, the Xtreme Ti requires a substantial outlay, but it certainly delivers results. With a stunning screen, unsurpassed 3D power and good looks, it secures a place on the A List as our power notebook of choice.
