Notebook PC Review: Hewlett Packard Elitebook 8440w Mobile Workstation

 

Taking a look at the Hewlett Packard (HP) Elitebook 8440w above, the term ‘sexy' might not come to mind for most, but for folks who use a business laptop day in and day out, have to travel around and access their data on the go, it is absolutely...

Advent 4211c review

 

A great netbook, but cheaper and more powerful alternatives can be found

10.2 inch screen ; Large keyboard

Limited grahics ; Not very good for multi-tasking

Advent 4211 notebook review

 

Since the news a few weeks ago that PC World was to launch a version of the MSI Wind under the Advent brand, the Internet has full of discussion about the new kid on the block. So what's the score? We got out hands on the Advent 4211 for a play. It is...

Price, good screen, usable keyboard, good overall design

No 3G option, battery life

The Advent 4211 is a great little computer and runs very well; at this price it is hard to go wrong

Advent 4211c review

 

Advent's 4211c is almost identical to MSI's Wind U100, except it has an understated matt black and grey case instead of the Wind's glossy black. The other major difference is price: the 4211 costs £36 less than the Wind.

Having been introduced to the MSI Wind, you could be forgiven for doing a double-take when you meet the Advent 4211. Place them side by side, and you'd be hard pressed to spot the difference. The case is the same shape, the keyboard has the same...

It's déj vu all over again. Effectively the same PC as the MSI Wind, but cheaper. A great deal.

Advent 4211 Netbook

 

It looks like the MSI Wind but it's called the Advent 4211. Does a price cut make it worth recommending?

If you want the cheapest 10in netbook out there, then the Advent 4211 is not difficult to recommend. You're basically getting an MSI Wind for less money, though also with half the warranty (one year instead of two). The Asus Eee PC 1000H offers far...

Advent 4211 review

 

Joining the new breed of netbooks is the Advent 4211 mini laptop, the cheapest to come with Windows XP

If you like the look of the MSI Wind, you'll love the idea of finding something practically the same for £50 less. But some buyers may be tempted by the MSI's two-year warranty, monochromatic colour scheme and included carry case. The crucial thing is,...

Advent 4211 review

 

The Advent 4211 is almost identical to the MSI Wind. It uses the same chassis and has the same specification, but is significantly cheaper. If you're after an affordable netbook, this is definitely worth considering

Screen ; Keyboard ; Value for money

Average battery life ; No integrated 3G

At the time of writing, the Advent 4211 is selling for £279.99 at PC World -- £40 less than the £320 MSI Wind. Read our full MSI Wind review for more information
