    Ouch.

    I had great dealings with Rock in the past, and was very close to purchasing from them a couple of times. They were always polite and as helpful as possible in both e-mail and telephone conversations.

    This news sucks. A lot. :(

    Could this be the first of the "super premium" laptop and PC companies to go?

    im not surprised, Nvidia took so long to release the 8800M series and with people wanting DX10 and vista gaming, the hardware wasn't there so PC based gaming increased.

    They were on my short list when I was looking for my new laptop/desktop replacement just a few weeks ago :idea:

    It's :( to hear/read about it though, 'coz they built some incredibly fast systems/laptops (which is the reason they were on my short list) :sigh:

    Very sad news, maybe someone in Taiwan will step in with an offer though I doubt that things would be the same.

    The glass is always half full.

    Or the glass is too large for the required liquid and a more optimal glass should be used.
