Check out the Advent Monza V200 laptop, currently on sale at Currys for £279.99. The price includes delivery and a £50 voucher to be redeemed instore against an item costing more than £200 (that deal runs from 12 to 25 September). This is a refurbished laptop, which goes a long way in explaining why it is quite cheap.
It runs on a dual-core Intel Celeron 847 processor, one which is clocked at 1.1GHz with 1MB of cache. It is backed by 8GB of RAM and a 1TB hard disk drive spinning at 5,400RPM. These two components are what make this laptop so attractive.
Other feature include a full size keyboard, Windows 8, three USB ports, Wi-Fi, a 15.6in display with a 1,366 x 768 pixel resolution, HD Audio, VGA/HDMI, a DVD writer, a webcam, a 4-cell Lithium Ion battery that can power the laptop for up to 2.5 hours and a dedicated numeric keypad.
The laptop, which is available in a range of colours, also has a dedicated numeric keypad and, in essence is a netbook in a laptop enclosure. It is however significantly more powerful than any Atom-powered netbook on the market.
