Reviews for the Advent 5712

70% Advent 5712 review
Source: Techradar English
Advent's laptop has a stunning 15" screen and great storage, but is flawed by poor overall performance. The Advent 5712 is something of a mixed bag. Its excellent screen and storage make it ideal for basic home use, but its poor battery life and low performance are bettered by almost all rivals. You may be able to find a better option.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

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.


T1600:

Merom based dual core processor with a reduced feature set (power saving functions, virtualization features) with a small level 2 cache.

15.4":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.7 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


Advent: This is the laptop brand of the hardware magazine PC World. The marketing focusses UK. Reviews of Advent-Laptops are relatively frequent and not only by PC World.


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
