Warwick – performance notebook manufacturer rock are looking forward to a positive 2007 following a hugely successful 2006. Their range of notebooks consistently impressed both the press and customers with over nineteen awards in one year. Highlights included Custom PC’s Best Performance Laptop 2006 and What Laptop Magazine’s Best Laptop for Performance and Features.
The team at rock had a clear focus for 2006; to lead the market with cutting edge technology without sacrificing quality. Their Intel Core Duo range proved a huge hit with rock accounting for 74% of Intel’s sales across EMEA for the first few months of sales of the top end T2700 processor. The range was later updated to the latest Core 2 Duo chips and continued to deliver strong results, reinforcing rock as the first choice for shoppers wanting cutting edge mobile performance from a reliable brand.
In November, rock became the first UK notebook manufacturer to advertise on TV with their sponsorship of the Cannonball 8000 rally coverage on ITV1. With Vista around the corner, 2007 will be an exciting year and rock promises to continue to offer unbeatable performance. 2007 has got off to a good start already with rock’s New Year Offers live on their website giving customers an extra incentive to upgrade in January and February.
Nick Boardman, CEO of rock said, “We have some very exciting products already confirmed for release in the first half of this year and will continue to work closely with our partners to bring new technology to market first. It’s great to see the team’s hard work and dedication paid off. As a specialist notebook manufacturer, quality and performance are vital to our success. We were thrilled to get consistently great comments from journalists. Winning nineteen awards in one year is just the icing on the cake. Our team remain passionate about designing notebooks for the most discerning user and 2007 promises to be another good year for rock.”
