Reviews for the Advent Roma 3000

60% Advent Roma 3000 review

A great 15" laptop for those on a budget, but the keyboard disappoints. Advent is PC world's in-house brand, and produces a range of laptops for a broad spectrum of users. The Roma 3000 represents good value for money at a competitive price, despite a few unfortunate design flaws. Despite its poor keyboard, the Advent Roma 3000 is a likeable machine that does its job well. It looks great, will run all your office software and comes with a very attractive price tag.

The £350 Advent Roma 1000 is the cheapest Windows 7 laptop available at the moment, but it's also one of the slowest. About only £80 more buys the Roma 3000. It has the same chassis, but an improved specification. An improved specification makes the Advent Roma 3000 a better all-rounder than the cheaper Roma 1000, but its weak battery life and lacklustre 3D graphics are disappointing. It's still a solid budget buy, but it's worth checking out other Windows 7 offerings before reaching for your credit card.

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 Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.


T4300:

Entry - middle class dual core CPU with 1 MB level 2 cache and no virtualization technology. Compared to the Core 2 Duo line, some power saving mechanism are deactivated.

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.


64.5%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
