    It could be an awfully slow processor, it is a Core 2 (penryn) Celeron but it's only a single core one. On the other hand it is very cheap for a 1.6kg laptop.

    The low-end CULV processors aren't used much so I don't know how it actually performs. Have you had a play with it? Advent as the DSG brand (PC World/Dixons/Curries) so they may have it in their shops.


    Heres a good … Heres a good deal.

    That's a lot heavier.

    Yes but its going to be used for college work at presumingly why have spend money on something crappy like that.

    I wouldnt waste money on an advent...they will last just over a year if your lucky!

    Spend your £350 or maybe another £50 if you can and your find a dual cored processor which will last longer then 13months.
