Reviews for the Advent Roma 3000

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).

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

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 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.9 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in 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.


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