Mick, Milton Keynes General user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very fast (Power Director took 3 minutes to load on my old machine 15 secs on the Advent.. Rendering a 5 minute video took 20 mins on my old machine about 2 mins on the Advent. Great graphics. loads of USB ports and the large size has an upside - plenty of room for expansion!
Bad points:
It's physically on the large size so really needs to be under the desk not on top of it.

Derek, Sheffield General user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to set up, the internet almost connected itself and although the case seemed enormous at first, it looks very impressive and the size does'nt seem to bother me anymore.
All in all very happy with my Advent computer.
I love all the USBs, with all my bits and pieces installed and running, I still have some left for future gadgets.
Windows & works great, Microsofts best yet.
Bad points:
I don't like "trial versions" of software. This machine came with Microsoft Office and Bullguard, niether of which I wanted.
Although I uninstalled them both, traces of both still remain, (Very Annoying).
The only other thing that caused me any bother was the headphone jack. You need to be like Arnold Swartsenegger to get it in all the way.

Steven, Glasgow Music & entertainment fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I use it for recording music and editing videos and it does both with ease. It has never frozen once while rendering large audio or video files. I now feel it was well worth paying a little extra to have this model with the decent video card (ATiRadeon5750) and processor (i5) rather than some of the lower priced alternatives on offer. Windows 7 has behaved itself (so far!) and is definitely a huge improvement over Vista but still not sure yet whether I prefer it to XP.
Bad points:
Nothing really bad. I have had to sacrifice some of my older programs and equipment because they are not supported in Windows 7 but overall it does seem to run smoothly and fast, so in the longer term it may prove to be a worthwhile sacrifice.
