Excerpt: I bought this Advent laptop as a cheap computer to take to work meetings and use on planes and trains. As such it has been great, however I would think that for a similar price you could buy a more powerful machine now. I bought this one 3 years ago. Despite only having a 12" screen I don't have a problem working on it for long periods of time and have even managed to hook it up to a monitor at home. It has been pretty robust and has been round the world with me.
Excerpt: Well, what can I say? This thing really has to be worth 5 stars. 6 if they were available. The glitches that afflict this machine are SO tiny I dare not even mention them. It's stable and I mean WOW is it stable? I don't miss the bigger screen in fact normal laptops feel like lumps in comparison. It does pretty much everything I ask of it including some surprisingly heavy jobs. The spec?
Excerpt: I have had this product 3 years and haven't had one problem with it yet other than the charger stopping working and that was only recently. It has webcam, wireless, new CPU and Bluetooth which i have always found really useful when sending my pictures from my phone. I prefer a net book as its nice, light, small and compact. Easy to take out with you and has a small 10 inch screen which in my opinion doesn't make much difference to any other sized screen.
Summary: My daughter, a friend and I all bought one of these roughly at the same time. The convenience is great if you have mains power - we have all experienced the same problem, the battery life is crap!! I have just bought a new battery despite the netbook having had little use, an expensive experiment but need the use of it. All of us are very disappointed.
A portable solution to the big problems, but it only gives you small ones!

Excerpt: Let's make this easy. Practically, but not quite, the Advent 4211 is an MSI Wind. Now for those who have read my MSI Wind review and are getting high blood pressure at the thought of me making a few pennies from reviewing the same product twice - calm down. I owned the Advent 4211 and the MSI Wind, actually starting with the Advent. Despite some huge similarities, there are also some differences which do, funnily enough, make the difference!
Excerpt: This is my laptop. This is the laptop I am currently using and have been using for over a year now. I absolutely love it. It is tiny, only 10'' screen, weights only 1.2 kg so you can take it anywhere, it has got a wifi so you can connect to internet anywhere too. Hard Drive is 120GB which is rather good. It also has got a webcam for those who like to use msn or skype for video calling or just chatting.
Excerpt: I bought this laptop in September 2008, planning to use it whilst living/travelling abroad. Its size made it an ideal candidate for the trip, although I was worried about its reliability and usability given its price and size. It has proved to be both reliable and very easy to use given its decent sized keyboard and full size return key.
Great laptop for its price and its compact size can be transported easily

Excerpt: Great laptop but remember when buying these small netbooks that they are packed with the great functions but are limited and the consumer is paying less for less. Iv had the advent now for 2 years and it has been great, almost working like a standard size laptop. Although only an XP operating system this has proved better than my Vista system.
Excerpt: I bought the Advent 4211C netbook nearly a year ago and also it has some bad points, I still love it and would recommend it. Rather than going into details what the netbook can do and can't do/specification/product description, I would just give you my opinion about it in general. The best thing is the size, it has a 10" widescreen and weights 1.2kg- I carry it with me everyday on my bike in a side bag, lots of other things have to go in there so the size and weight was...
