Chuck Wiki

The Roark Instruments R7 is a gaming laptop developed by Roark Instruments, and forms a minor element of the plot of Chuck Versus the Predator.

It is revealed at the beginning of Chuck Versus the Predator that the Burbank branch of the Buy More is to receive the new R7 before the Beverly Hills branch. The Beverly Hills branch employees, therefore, decided to cover the Burbank branch in toilet paper.

When a package containing Orion's Laptop is delivered to the Buy More addressed to Chuck, Lester assumes it is the R7, as it has never been seen, and pretends to be Chuck in order to intercept and use the laptop.


Not the Roark 7

The Orion computer shown in Chuck Versus the Predator is also shown in Chuck Versus Phase Three, which, upon seeing Lester asks, "You have a Roark 7?" It was Lester who previously believed that the Orion laptop was the Roark 7 although he'd never actually seen one.

In other episodes, however, displays are placed in the Buy More of the Roark 7 computer. A picture of the computer is not shown on the displays but the computer thought to be the Roark 7 has a green and black wiry pattern on it, which matches the pattern on the displays at the Buy More, suggesting that the Roark 7 is actually the computer shown.
