1.0 out of 5 stars Great for the first few months, 10 July 2014

Great for the first few months, but then just stopped working.. won't connect to any bluetooth devices. Would have been happy to get a replacement if this was an option.

2.0 out of 5 stars Top laptop, but.., 1 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent hardware, but.. with annoying Samsung software that appears to reinstall itself if you try to remove. Finally found an internet article that explains how the latest iteration of Samsung's software makes use of the Windows "Task Scheduler" apparently to circumvent user attempts to uninstall it. Make a note of this if you decide to buy, I hope it saves you from wasting an evening trawling discussion groups!


How To Pull Girls: An Insider Guide To Success With Women
How To Pull Girls: An Insider Guide To Success With Women
by Julia Bruni
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic guide, 15 Jan. 2010
Really enjoyed reading this book.. In fact, it was a friend who bought it and we've all been putting the ideas into action. It's a fun book, not very self-help and Julia doesn't go for phoney analysis or try to intellectualise. She gives normal advice that works a treat, and let's you see the opportunities that hide in everyday situations. Very enlightening, you'll never see things the same again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal introduction and reference to Regular Expressions, 22 Dec. 2005
This is an excellent little book - it's short enough to read easily as an introduction to the topic. But as I progress into more and more convoluted uses of regular expressions, I've been amazed to see that it still manages to find space for solutions to these. All in all, this is a very well structured and concisely written guide, and I can't think of any way in which it could be improved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 15 Oct. 2003
I bought the previous version of this book to help me write a business plan before seeking startup funding for a technology idea. For my needs, this book continues to be my primary reference when writing business plans.
The language used is clear, and there are a few dry jokes that I'm ashamed to say did make me laugh out loud. Having said this, the book is probably more thorough than some readers need - if you want to write the type of business plan that the bank invites you to do when opening an account (e.g. competitive landscape is a single page of local competitors, their prices and their strengths/weaknesses) then you'll find that this book is overkill. If you plan to spend two weeks or more writing your business plan then this book will probably make the process much easier, and lead to a more thoughtful document that stands up to detailed financial and strategic analysis by bank managers, investors, advisors etc. If this is what you're trying to write, then you'd be a total monkey to start without reading this book.
