    hi, quick query here...

    been offered an advent laptop and it's a pentium 4 2.8ghz - now, I'm aware that the can overheat and with it having the bigger fan can be quite noisy (tho, I haven't seen the laptop yet!), not sure of the rest of the spec, but it's got a 40gb hdd, new build of xp pro on it, wireless network etc,,,

    going for 250 and considering I was after a laptop anyway - what do ya reckon?

    it has 16 months warantee left... :thumbsup:

    edit - it's just for surfing the web whilst watching tv really, not playing games etc...

    Sounds good for the price.
    The only reservation I would have is regarding the "Advent" name.
    ISTR that is a marketing name used by the dreaded DSG group.
    Hopefully the guarantee (assuming it's backed up with a receipt and is transferable) makes up for that.
