Advantages: Easy to use out of the box, good performance
I did a lot of research on netbooks and found that the Samsung models were the best sellers, although this advent has many identical components inside.
I wanted a netbook to replace my PC, not augment it so I needed it to be fast with a large screen and good connectivity. The advent has not disapponted.
The wifi worked right out of the box and I havent used my PC once since I got the netbook 3 months ago. It is very reliable and doesnt heat up too much - I often have it on for up to 4 or 5 hours at a time.
The 120gb disk is ample and with the ability to easily connect USB storage this isnt a problem. The netbook comes with 1 GB of ram but can be upgraded to 2GB. I only use it for web browsing and it has been fine.
Design wise, this looks great, it doesnt have a super shiny screen like some do so its easy to read, and the screen hinges directly onto the base which looks nice - I hate the ones with a big gap there.
Summary: excellent value
