Advent Milano review


The Milano is Advent's first netbook with Windows 7 Starter Edition

Good storage ; Windows 7 Starter ; Connectivity

Screen quality and angle ; Noisy keyboard ; 3-Cell battery

Although not the best netbook currently on offer, Windows 7 Starter Edition makes this a much more appealing option that it's Vista loaded brethren but still not as fast as an XP alternative. If you need speed, look elsewhere

Advent Milano Laptop


Advent is the manufacturer of budget computer hardware that aims to compete with far more expensive alternatives. This is a netbook computer, which means that it is extremely lightweight and ideal for using as a portable companion.

Advent Milano Elite (Refurbished Netbook)


Although refurbished the condition was appaling the cable was frayed, stuff had dried and crusted on the keys. When I turned it on it froze, the speakers crackled and it was very very slow. Quite chunky design

Advent Milano Elite (Refurbished Netbook)


Brilliant computer. I brought it to replace my old advent while it was getting fixed and now use it as my main computer. Battery life is brilliant last so much longer than expected.Tthe memory is good. The screen size is perfect even for watching films...

The only bad point about about this computer and even then its not to bad is the battery is quite heavy not overly weighty but still could be improved! It can also be a little bit noisy but i find that with all advents!

Advent Milano (Refurbished)


Size, weight, price

Battery life short , but inevitable given the good points above. Wireless connection seems to switch on and off a lot, perhaps to save power, and annoyingly keeps saying that it's 'now connected'. in a popup that has to be closed again and again.

Advent Milano Elite (Refurbished Netbook)


Small, light, good battery life, easy to operate and has a network cable port.

Can be a little slow when doing multiple things, but mostly I use this for lecture notes so it's not a problem.
