Advent laptops worth over £6k
There's never been a better time to ditch your desktop
Todays portable powerhouses, such as the Advent 6555, pictured, are more than just desktop replacements; theyre do-it-all, internet-ready HD hubs for generation 2.0.
How will a laptop like this allow you to get the most from mobile computing? On the home entertainment front, the 6555 has a built-in Blu-ray player for viewing films on the 17-inch widescreen display or your lounge flatscreen, via HDMI.
The speedy 512MB nVidia GeForce 9600 graphics card will cope with the latest 3D games and theres a 250GB hard disk for storing those ever-growing collections of digital music, photos and videos. If that starts to run short, an external hard drive can be added using any one of the three USB ports.
Theres also the option to back-up your personal and private data to the internet, courtesy of Windows Vista Home Premium and the built-in, cable-free Wi-Fi.
Mobile processing technology has moved into the blisteringly fast Quad Core era and the Advent 6555 is no exception. Pushing everything along here is the Q9000 four-core processor from Intel. This next-gen chip provides excellent performance and energy efficiency, so laptops like this are just as happy on the road as they are in your home.
The laptop has evolved and is now better than ever. Why be tied to a desktop?
