Good price, but I wouldn't trust Advent whatsoever, being DSGs own brand, getting customer support from them normally isn't great, imagine if this breaks (And Advent laptops don't have a reliable reputation!)

Banned

i`d never buy a Advent laptop again after dealing with Dixons and there customer service team

Most older Advent laptops were made by Medion, more recently ECS, yet another problem with these laptops, without a dedicated website it takes an extensive google search to find any drivers for them by finding out exactly what clone model it is!

Tricky. Advent isn't a good brand but it's going to be hard to find a spec close at that price.
I'd say if you can afford a bit more then go for a better brand where you are more likely to be able to get good driver support, but it's hard to argue with that spec at that price point.
On balance I've got to vote hot.

have bought a few advent refurbs from the Dixons site. Come in a brown box - had to send one back. Collected the next day and new one in hand within 3 days. Drivers are tricky - but they come loaded with a Tech Guys link which has all the drivers you need for any Advent model!

What if you dont have £100? Also - don't buy Acer! As bad as Advent!

Have bought three different Acer's - cheap but have had graphics problems. Customer service not overly helpful. Likewise with Advent's - had problems but they have been resolved quickly. A useful customer service makes it a lot easier.
I suppose its down to personal choice! If I had to choose - I would avoid both and buy a pen and paper!:whistling:

If you have spammed this, could you explain why? I can't see this posted anywhere else and the deal is still available.
