I bought this Advent laptop as a cheap computer to take to work meetings and use on planes and trains. As such it has been great, however I would think that for a similar price you could buy a more powerful machine now. I bought this one 3 years ago.
Despite only having a 12" screen I don't have a problem working on it for long periods of time and have even managed to hook it up to a monitor at home.
It has been pretty robust and has been round the world with me.
The only problem that a couple of others have mentioned is a lack of battery life. Without being plugged in this little laptop will use it's battery within an hour. So for those wanting something that will work for longer I would recommend buying an additional battery to plug into the back.
It's powerful enough to run all the programs and software that I need, including Firefox, Microsoft Office 2010, iTunes, Kindle etc. It also runs the online LoveFilm service and I've streamed tv programs from BBC iPLayer etc. no problem.
All in all a great little laptop.
Summary: Good little laptop for the money.
