Was £599.
Styled on the Mac Book Air, this looks like a pretty nice looking machine if portability is important but you're put off by smaller netbooks. The processor looks a bit weedy, and it's only 120gb hard drive but the rest of the spec looks good with b/g/n wireless, bluetooth, fingerprint reader etc. Eligible for Windows 7 upgrade too.

There's an Elite version that's reduced from £799 to £399 (or £379 with voucher) with a better processor (Intel Core 2 Solo) and better case finish but the same spec elsewhere.

Full spec lifted from the Currys site:
--------------------------------------
The Advent Altro is powered by the energy-efficient Intel® Celeron® M Processor ULV 723, and comes pre-loaded with the Genuine Windows Vista® Home Premium operating system.

A 120GB hard drive provides you with space for multimedia files and documents, and is also shock-proof, which will help preserve your data if you're unlucky enough to drop your machine. In addition, a potent 3GB RAM helps to ensure that you can keep your notebook running smoothly even when multitasking!

The incredibly slim-line Advent Altro is full of useful features, despite being only 21.8mm thick. Its 13.3" widescreen WXGA display delivers breathtaking picture quality, whilst a sunken keyboard further enhances the streamlined look.

Aside from being stunning to behold, the Advent Altro is also eminently portable, and weighs in at a mere 1.6 kg. This ultra-thin notebook will provide you with an outstanding and dependable performance without weighing you down!

Thanks to the Altro's low-voltage processing, you can also benefit from up to 4 hours of wireless computer operation, providing you with plenty of time to catch up on work whilst you travel.

The Advent Altro impresses when it comes to connectivity too, with the inclusion of Bluetooth support, built-in WiFi technology, a USB port, an HDMI connector, and a Multi Function Connector - which allows you to connect an external port replicator. An integrated webcam even lets you chat with friends and family worldwide!

This svelte notebook also incorporates a fingerprint reader to help safeguard your valuable data - eliminating the need for password access.

Beautifully fashioned, the Advent Altro notebook offers an uncompromising, low-profile solution to high-performance computing on the move!

A little, but the cheap ones are always the larger 15.4" models. Much cheaper to make, so cheaper for you to buy.

Personally I like smaller laptops, don't see the point otherwise. Not a massive fan of Advent kit, but it's a reasonable deal.

mumbojumbo
These are rebadged Olidata Conte models. Quite like the look of the Elite, but don't need one.

Looks pretty nice. If it had a Pentium Dual Core SU4100 and a larger HDD I might have been tempted at this price. Wonder how much the ‘free’ Win7 upgrade is?

Looks nice. Bit slow and only one USB. Its a compromise I guess.

Yeah, it has it's limitations. It does come with a break-out expander (dongle that plugs into a port in the rear) which gives another two USB ports though along with ethernet and VGA.

Taken from the PC Advisor review:
The Advent Altro has near-identical ports quota as the Apple MacBook Air, but adds a break-out expander for VGA analogue video, ethernet and two more USB 2.0



I'm quite tempted by the Elite version, but it's a bit too big for what I want.

I'm really after one of the new 11.6" dual core netbook/notebook crossovers so think I'll hold fire for a good deal on either:
[LIST]
[*] - Acer Ferrari One (not sure about the slightly brash styling, but spec looks good)
[*] - Acer 1810tz (still a bit too pricey atm)
[*] - Dell 11z (dual core)
[/LIST]

Anyone know of any good deals on the above?
