Advent Sienna 500 review

 

Advent's Sienna 500 is a powerful laptop for the price, but a small hard disk and poor battery life layout prevent it winning an award.

Extremely good value for money. Very good performance, Good screen, Love the keyboard and I like the seperate keypad

High technical specification for the money

Doesn't come with 64Bit version of Windows 7 ; Online support is almost entirely non-existent ; Keyboard button style isn't to everyone's taste ; As a whole the unit can feel a bit flimsy ; For IT professionals it doesn't offer many low-level features...

It is all plasticy, not happy at all! Size and shape, I just do not have liked it at all. My strong advise to anyone, who is thinking to buy this product is do not waste your money

Excellent value for money, you get a much higher spec for the same price you would pay for a more well known brand

Quite a heavy machine

Machine speed and screen is excellent. Very good value for money

Battery life is poor, but if you are mainly using it a home that is not a problem. The keyboard/case edges are a little sharp, which is surprising
