Reviews for the Advent Roma

70% Advent Roma
Source: Techradar English
On first impressions, the Advent Roma - Advent's latest in its line-up of PC world-only laptops - looks to be a decent entry-level PC. One of the Roma's greatest features is the fact that it comes with hardly any annoying software pre-installed. Clearly, the company selling this laptop – that is, PC World to be exact – know that most customers prefer to have a clean slate. Instead, the Roma comes with a handy tool that contains a range of great software that you can download, with a try-before-you-buy option first.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.

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

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


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.


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
