Advent is adding to its hugely popular laptop range with the launch today of the Altro, Advent’s most stylish, best value and thinnest laptop yet.
Elegantly engineered the Altro measures just 21mm and weighs only 1.6kg making it thinnest and lightest laptop available for under £600.

Combining the very latest in fashion, functionality and affordability the Altro features an array of the very latest technology and features including a 13.3” widescreen display, built-in webcam and security software. A stylish metal casing and integrated sunken keyboard gives this laptop a sleek and streamlined look. It’s available at PC World from 24 August priced from £599.99

The Altro is packed full of additional features designed to maximise ease of use and performance including ambient lighting and the very latest gesture touchpad, allowing for example, users to pinch items on the pad. Finger print recognition software ensures minimal time but maximum security when logging in.

Designed with the very latest ultra-low voltage processor, the Altro’s battery will last for up to 4 hours making it perfect for mobile use. Anti shock technology also helps protect the hard drive if the laptop is accidentally knocked whilst on the move.
The Altro features a 120GB hard drive and Window Vista Home Premium operating system (with free upgrade to Windows 7 Premium when launched on October 22). A large 3GB memory combined with the latest Intel Celeron processor allows the Altro to handle multiple applications at the same time, while a port replicator has 2 USB ports enabling added memory devices or peripherals to be connected effortlessly.

For those really looking to stand out in a crowd, a second model, the Altro Elite, is also available priced £799.99. Featuring a premium flush glass finish the Elite also comes with a faster Intel Core 2 Solo processor and longer battery life.
