I am considering the Advent 5511 Laptop. It states on the details in the shop that is has 250mb of dedicated graphics memory, but that isn't reflected anywhere else in the spec. Can anyone confirm? It is needed for downloading and playing big fish games mainly, plus strategy games, but not the heavyweight pc stuff.
Without a dedicated graphics card, the Advent 5511 suffered the usual score of around 5 frames per second (fps) on the FEAR gaming test at benchmark maximum settings. To get a usable framerate, we turned graphics quality to Low, whereby the Advent 5511 acheived an eminently usable 57fps. For unknown reasons the WorldBench 6 test refused to complete, but the Windows Experience Index rated the Advent 5511 as 3.1 overall, brought down by its 3.1 gaming graphics score. Processor, memory and hard disk score were all nudging 5 points here, a respectable score.
oh by the way just checked out the spec of that fujitsu, save yourself £30 and get a better brand click here and the graphics might be dedicated on this but they are the worst of the dedicated and really no better than some good onboard graphics plus onboard tend to be more reliable.
Interesting you should say that, because a friend of mine had already recommended this one, but i was concerned about the lack of a seprate graphics card. I am in retail myself and am well aware that you gret what you pay for, but laptops are a nightmare!!So you are saying that this is overall a better machine and the processor is ok? How does the processor compare with the Athlon machine, bearing in mind the prefix "P"? Really appreciate your advice on here guys
