The Advent 5511 utilises its superior Intel chipset to enable longer battery life, greater wireless connectivity and the ability to handle everything from intense business to advanced multimedia functions (such as HD video encoding) all of which are done at astounding speeds, making it ideal for home and business use.
The 5511 combines its processing power with a meaty 250GB HDD, a 2GB RAM and shows off its HD capabilities on a crisp 15.4" widescreen display. In addition it integrates the latest 802.11n WI-FI, which is fast enough to support wireless video streaming and mobile online gaming.

"We have high hopes for the Advent 5511 and feel that with its super-fast chipset it's one of the bargains of the year. The Advent is perfect for entertainment with the HD content – you watch high-def movies etc downloaded from the web on your laptop where ever you are. With such a strong price-point, the Advent 5511 gives people the option of purchasing a superb, powerful high-end laptop without breaking the bank."
