Reviews for the Advent Roma 2000

40% Advent Roma 2000 review
Source: Techradar English
A decent laptop for basic home use, but flawed by an awful battery life. As with all but the HP Compaq 6735s, an integrated camera is fitted above the screen for keeping in touch with family and friends via instant messaging software. Buyers are also sure to appreciate the accessible in-store repair service offered by PC World with this laptop. Overall, the strong usability, capacious storage and stunning screen of the Roma 2000 make it a decent choice for basic tasks. Its awful battery life is likely to deter many buyers, however, so you may prefer to take a look at one of the other machines at this price point.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 900: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip with shared memory on Mobile Intel 915GM chipset. It is the predecessor of Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The performance can be compared with the Mobile Radeon 9000 (with a 64 bit memory bus).

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

Intel Celeron M: It is a Pentium M with halved level 2 Cache and limited on FSB 400. The characteristic of this processor is the speed, which is hardly slower than an equivalent Pentium M. However it can change the speed not dynamically like the Pentium M and therefore needs without load more current.
It is also available as Low Voltage Version with very small current consumption.


900: Single core processor based on the Penryn core but many advanced features are deactivated. Due to the missing Speedstep, the CPU may lead to a lower battery runtime.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6":

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

2.9 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.


40%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
