Reviews for the Advent Milano

50% Advent Milano review

With four netbooks already released under PC World's in-house Advent brand, it is no surprise to see yet another model added to the range. While the Milano is an affordable and functional device, it fails to stand out. Overall, the Milano is a usable and great priced machine, but struggles to stand out in an already crowded market.

We’re going to have to wait until next year for netbooks with specifications that are appreciably different from those that have been available for the last two years — that’s when Intel is scheduled to launch its new Pine Trail netbook platform, with dual-core Atom processors and all manner of other improvements. The Advent Milano isn’t the best netbook we’ve ever reviewed, but it is one of the cheapest and its faults are easily overlooked at this price — but the Samsung N130 is cheaper still, and has longer battery life.

With Intel expected to announce its new 'Pine Trail' Atom processors at CES 2010, now may not be the best time to buy a netbook with a specification set firmly in 2008. At around £230 though, the Windows 7 version of the 10.2-inch Advent Milano is temptingly priced for a pre-Christmas purchase (the Windows XP model costs about £10 less). There's nothing even remotely new in the Advent Milano, but it represents good value for money, as long as battery life isn't a big deal for you. If you shop around, however, you'll find the Samsung N130 available for slightly less, and it can last longer on battery power.

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).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


N270:

Power efficient, cheap and slow Netbook single core CPU. Because of the in-order execution, the performance per MHz is worse than Core Solo or Celeron M processors.

10.2": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.2 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


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.


52.33%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
