In truth, the Advent K laptops don’t differ much from a standard model, with the exception of a few cosmetic additions, including interchangeable covers and colourful accessories, including webcams. And a few of parent-friendly additions too – a copy of Norton Internet Security 2007, Know It All by ChildNet, a utility that helps to educate young people on the safe use of the internet and free set-up in-store (so you don’t embarrass yourself in front of the kids at home).
Three specifications are available, with the high-end machine packing in a dual-core Pentium T2130, 2GB of memory and a copy of Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 for around £650.
