Laptop vendors tend to stretch the truth a bit (well, quite a lot) when it comes to battery life measurements. Imagine our surprise, then, when we discovered that the battery of the Pegasus 330 actually lasted longer than the three-and-a-half hours Rock had claimed in its press release.
The MobileMark 2002 test showed the cell to be good for four hours and nine minutes – a very impressive score. A 13.3in screen and weight of 2.2kg add to the appeal if you're looking for something to use on your travels. The price tag won't hurt, either.
A WorldBench 5 score of 83 suggests that the Rock is more than a dinky toy – for something this size, it's got impressive grunt. The graphics processor might not be much to shout about, but this isn't a gaming machine. The Pegasus has got plenty of processing power and storage space, and connectivity options are good: 802.11a/b/g, three USB 2.0 ports, one for LAN and a mini-FireWire dock. There's a slot that will read three types of memory card.
