My Advent 7012 overheats and cuts out after only a few minutes. The operation intermittent screen display fault now repaired new hdd needed under warranty new cd reader needed under warranty. Piece of rubbish; worst bit of kit I have ever bought; go for a brand name every time ie a company that has a reputation to protect and keep away from the people at PC world who cannot do "joined up" thinking.

My Advent takes 11mins from switching it on to becoming operational. I have tried to find out why but no-one can offer any solution. It is by no means full of clutter and it hasn't even got Microsoft Office on it. And it is for that reason I am disappointed with it. (read more)

I have had my Advent 7012 for just over two years the only problems I have had is it used to shut down when using a lot of power hungry programmes then I cleaned the proccessor fan and it was as good as new. I use my laptop for editing videos which is one of the most power hungry things that you can do with any pc not just a laptop. Once the proccessor was clean it worked as well as the day I bought it. I have upgraded my memory to 1gig which is the max you can upgrade this machine to and it... (read more)

I've had very little if no problems with this Advent 7012 laptop, it does everything i need it to. I wonder sometimes though, when the games are freezing or DVD is jumping, where all that processor goes? With a high MB Ram as well it should be exceeding my expectations for a laptop of this caliber but it doesn't. But all in all its a sweet computer. Very thin and highly portable although the battery doesnt last very long. The most annoying thing above all is the damn paintwork is really... (read more)

Have had my Advent 7012 Laptop for just over a year now and it's still working well. My biggest complaint about the machine is that it is prone to overheating - the fan being on the bottom can result in insufficient cooling leading to the machine shutting down without warning. This is certainly the case if it is on your lap (!) but also sometimes happens when the pc is on a desk (especially when using lots of processing power). Have found that sitting a book under each rear corner to let... (read more)

This Advent 7012 is a great laptop for people who are buying their first laptop. its a generally good laptop, does the job and does not let you down where every other PC doesn't. Wherever it goes wrong it is joined by every other laptop! Common problems are the screen flickering, paint work fading after heavy use, weak battery degrading performance, faulty CD drive. But then again these are common problems for most laptops. Doesn't have the most branded components, such as the graphics... (read more)
