great way to stop my Dell laptop cooking off. When I've built a housing for them on a beanbag tray they'll be even better. Ignore the feet though, they really, really don't work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bloody good value., 18 Jun. 2015

Like all Dells, it has a tendency to overheat, a problem fixed by putting extra fans underneath. Unlike some Dells the fan housing is properly gapped, but the heat sink runs along the bottom where it's always on a warm lap.... Otherwise I like it a lot, it runs like a bat out of hell, and when I get two lots of 4Gig of RAM in, not the double 2Gig I shall be laughing.
Mine does have a boot problem, but meh, tickling F12 while it boots is no real hardship. And for the price you don't expect perfection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid!, 18 Jun. 2015

Excellent and in-depth research of a fascinating man, his life and times, a must-have piece of source material for the serious historian of the late Georgian era. For anyone with even a passing interest in clothing and textiles, this is a fascinating read, and for anyone interested in the economics of the last years of the 18th and early 19th century also very interesting. The only complaint I have is that it's not yet in hard copy.


FERRARI RED DELL D630 CORE DUO LAPTOP
FERRARI RED DELL D630 CORE DUO LAPTOP

3.0 out of 5 stars The machine I bought has some issues with crashing, ..., 24 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The machine I bought has some issues with crashing, and apparently it's a D630 issue that typing capital C, F and occasionally other letters around them can send the cursor somewhere random, as it happened on my old D630 too. Once you get used to looking for your cursor and closing any random windows that this opens it's a pain but livable with for the price. I think it's a keyboard design flaw; unless it's only a flaw in reconditioned ones, in which case it's a reconditioning flaw. Using voice activated software negates the issue of course.
It does the job which is to allow me to do my emails, shop online and write books which are the things I need a laptop for. I've sent for a new battery though as the battery died very quickly.

great product, like all of Nairn's gluten-free range. Tasty and not too horribly expensive.

the second story was amusing enough and enjoyable in Chesney's usual light hearted style, but the first story was downright silly.

5.0 out of 5 stars marvellous resource!, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
the original of this book has so much information packed into it, but I have to say it moves from being remarkably useful to being amazingly helpful with the addition of the notes on the part of the editor, whose dedication enables one to really get to grips with the eateries of Regency London, and the markets. I learned a lot, and that's my criterion for a great book.

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT what I was expecting, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This isn't a book of short stories by Marion Chesney, there are two other authors who are remarkably indifferent writers and one is stupid enough to have her Regency heroine eating chocolates. The cover is anachronistic and I wish I'd spent my money on a full length novel by Chesney.

Wonderful to be able to get large sheets, I cut them in half and can cut exactly to size for my mum's leg ulcers which have been healing nicely with this to aid them.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as advertised, 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For one thing it's not a pack of two, it's only one. For another, it's not pure rose water. The list of ingredients are: Aqua, Propylene Glycol, Potassium sorbate, rose extract, citric acid, citronellol, geraniol.
This is not traditionally extracted, this is solvent extracted, and with all those additives too. Very poorly described and not fit for its purpose.
