Reviews for the Advent 6555

Advent - 6555 review
Source: IT Reviews English
Quite how Advent has managed to cram so much into a laptop for under £1,000 is a mystery to us. It's not without its fair share of issues and some may yearn for a higher native resolution, but in terms of performance the 6555 gives the majority of desktop PCs a run for their money. If you're looking for a gaming laptop but are on a tight budget, you'd do well to find better at this price.

A powerful quad-core laptop offering impressive gaming performance. Rounding out the specification, the 250GB hard drive is ideal for storing multimedia files and running games from the disk. A subwoofer is also fitted below the chassis, adding bass to music and games, but we found audio quality not much better than on rival laptops. Although there are more powerful gaming laptops on the market, the quad-core power and HD compatibility of the Advent 6555 make it a strong media centre and ideal for multimedia fans with an eye for the latest technology.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4850:

Based on the desktop HD 4850 but with slower clock rates, the Radeon HD 4850 features DirectX 10.1 support with a relatively large 256 bit memory bus.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Quad: Mobile version of the desktop Quad Core processor. Due to low clock rates it is not recommended for most applications.


Q9000:

Slow clocked quad core CPU (4 cores) that suffers especially in many games from the low clock speed. Therefore, not suited for games and only for highly multi threaded applications.

17.0":

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

3.6 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.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
