Care Plan for Laptops

A Care Plan protects your laptop if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap. You also benefit from a computer healthcheck every year.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Product details

The Advent Tacto 11.6" Touchscreen Laptop is a portable device with full computing performance.

Windows 8 works for you

Revolving around a colourful tiled layout, Windows 8 lets you customise your Start screen to suit your daily tasks. Organise your applications and enjoy its enhanced control features to glide through your content seamlessly. Designed for touchscreen use, it works just as well if you're using a keyboard and mouse or touchpad, so you get the same fluid usability on any machine.

This impressive operating system is built around the use of applications to provide speedier, more flowing and reliable interaction. Its connection with cloud technology allows you to access and share files through internet services and across other devices, keeping your important content with you at all times, wherever you go.

Great everyday computing

The Advent Tacto is kitted out to give you better general-purpose laptop performance. Its Intel® Celeron® 1017U processor runs on 4 GB of RAM for great application running and browsing speeds.

Store loads of important photos, documents, videos and songs to the 500 GB hard drive so that you can keep content that matters with you at all times.

True touchscreen performance

You'll be able to interact directly with the Windows 8 interface using the 10-point multitouch screen built into the Advent Tacto 11.6" Laptop. Tap and swipe your way through apps and settings to get to what you want, faster and smoother than ever.

Your videos and graphics will look great on the 11.6” screen as it packs colour, detail and precision into its 1366 x 768 pixel resolution. The Intel Mobile NM70 chipset is able to use up to 1.7 GB of system memory to give you great visual performance.

Integrated stereo speakers allow you to hear your movies and favourite songs in crisp, punchy detail.

Flexible computer use

If you prefer a more traditional approach, the Advent Tacto Purple features a full-sized island-style keyboard for comfortable, fluid typing. There's also a touchpad that supports multiple-gesture use so that you can easily use Windows 8 without the touch interface.

Web surfing is just a few clicks away thanks to the built-in WiFi connection – or you can use a trusty wired Ethernet connection.

Attach peripheral devices like hard drives, graphics tablets and more using the three USB 2.0 ports. It's possible to connect the laptop to an external monitor or compatible HD TV using the built-in VGA and HDMI connections. An SD card reader allows you to transfer information from your digital camera, camcorder and other devices.

Web chatting is clear and comfortable using the integrated 1.0 MP webcam, so you can stay in touch wherever you are.

Representing great computer value, the purple Advent Tacto 11.6" Touchscreen Laptop will keep you productive while you're on the go.
