Reviews for the Advent 5611
Advent is PC World's in-house brand, providing well-equipped, value-for-money laptops such as the Advent 5611. Crammed with features such as a 15.4-inch screen, an Intel GMA4500 GPU, HDMI output and an eSATA port. It's also features an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. With an attractive design, good quality build and the latest components, the Advent 5611 is definitely great value, but it's let down badly by the keyboard. The design results in compromised usability, making it an awkward choice for daily use.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Celeron Dual-Core: The Intel Celeron Dual-Core familiy consists out of dual core CPUs for cheap laptops. Compared to the Celeron M single core family the biggest advantage (in addition to the second core) is the Enhanced Speedstep function, which enables the notebook to downclock the CPU in Idle mode. Therefore, the current consumption can be much lower. Compared to the Core (2) Duo or Pentium Dual-Core processors, the Celeron Cual-Core features much less L2 Cache which leads to a lower performance per clock.
Merom based dual core processor with a reduced feature set (power saving functions, virtualization features) with a small level 2 cache.
