Advent 4211

by Rory Reid
Price as reviewed £279

The Advent 4211 is a re-badged alternative to the MSI Wind. Its differences are mostly cosmetic -- whereas the Wind is available in a number of colours, the 4211 is available with a black lid and silver interior only. You only get one choice of operating system, too -- Windows XP -- but there is other useful software.

It ships with Cyberlink YouCam webcam software, which facilitates easy uploading to YouTube. There's also some drive-based recovery software that'll let you reinstall Windows XP -- should the unexpected happen -- without using an optical drive.

At the time of writing, the Advent 4211 is selling for £279.99 at PC World -- £40 less than the £320 MSI Wind. Read our full MSI Wind review for more information.
