Advent - 6555


Better known for its range of low-cost PCs, it's fair to say that Advent isn't the first brand name that springs to mind when you're looking for a high-end computer. But with a quad-core CPU and ...

Quite how Advent has managed to cram so much into a laptop for under £1,000 is a mystery to us. It's not without its fair share of issues and some may yearn for a higher native resolution, but in terms of performance the 6555 gives the majority of...

Advent 6555
