4 Reasons For

Reasonably Priced

One Advent Tacto owner who reviewed this laptop reckoned that it was good value for money. Expert review site Pcadvisor.co.uk said in their review of the Advent Tacto “The Advent Tacto certainly looks to be good value for money, as it manages to offer perfectly respectable screen quality”.

Good Product Quality

One Advent Tacto owner who reviewed the product considered that it was good quality.

Has a Touchscreen

Unlike most of the other portable PCs that have been on the market for more than two years which do not have a touchscreen, the Advent Tacto has a touchscreen.

We compared all the other notebook PCs with a touchscreen to this portable PC and we think because of it's better review score, the Lenovo Z500, the Asus Transformer Book Flip TP300, and the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 (£634.98) is also worth considering.

6 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

This Advent portable PC received a rating of 60% from laptop expert review website PC Advisor.co.uk. It seems that laptop experts really don't rate this Advent laptop very highly.

Does Not Have a Front Camera

Like most of the other notebook PCs of a comparable age and spec to the Tacto, the Advent Tacto does not have a front camera.

It is worth also looking at alternative laptops which also have a front camera including the Acer Aspire One AO725, the HP EliteBook 745, or the Lenovo T440 (£1,499.02) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Advent Tacto does not have a full-size keyboard. Most of the other notebook PCs of a similar type and age to the Tacto also do not have a full-size keyboard.

We think you might also be interested in other laptops which also have a full-size keyboard including the Fujitsu LifeBook E752, the Lenovo G50-70, or the HP ENVY 15 which also has a higher rating.

Quite Small Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of only 11.6 inches, the Advent Tacto has one of the smallest display diagonals amongst portable PCs of this age. The display diagonals of portable PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Tacto range from 10" to 18", and the average display diagonal is 14".

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 11.6" portable PCs currently available including the Pavilion dm1-4306au, or the EliteBook 2170p (£759.99) both from HP or the Acer Aspire One AO725 which has better reviews.

Portable PCs with a bigger display diagonal that might be worth looking at include the Surface Pro 3 (12"), the Surface Pro 3 (£634.98) (12"), or the Surface Pro 3 (12") all from Microsoft which is also higher rated.
