AmazonBasics Laptop Sleeve for 11.6-Inch Laptop / Chromebook / MacBook Air
Price: £6.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Juuuust big enough. Handle would be nice., 21 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is suitable and sufficient protection for what it holds. If you have SSD cards attached and don't want to remove them (it), then it is a tight squeeze. A handle of some kind would be nice because it feels like I'm carrying a "clutch£ handbag.


Wyrd Sisters: (Discworld Novel 6) (Discworld series)
Wyrd Sisters: (Discworld Novel 6) (Discworld series)
Price: £3.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best one in the series., 20 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm currently reading these novels in order and this one in my opinion is not one of the best so far. It's story is a bit weak and focuses on three witches which are depicted as washer women from the north. Things like "Our Jason he'll give him a good seeing too" are common.
I will continue reading the series but this one hasn't amused me as much as the others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fit for purpose, very useful., 21 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For my purpose, powering town lights and street lights on a model railway, it does the job. By altering voltage I can change the brightness of the LEDs. Oh and the first thing I did was cut the end off to bare wires - was necessary.

3.0 out of 5 stars Feels like a book of quotes at times. Interesting read overall., 10 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The God Delusion (Kindle Edition)
This book takes a long time for the author to make any point. The first 100 pages or so are answered questions which the book has provoked readers and critics to pose. Takes a long, long time to skip through thee on a Kindle. A lot of this book are quotations from other sources. In fact it is hard to read a page without somebody or some reference being quoted. Dawkins uses abbreviations to refer to certain groups of people's but it is easy to forget what they are as you continue to read. When the book eventually gets to what Dawkins actually thinks his views are clear and he explains with rationale why this is so.
It was a good read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for what it is. Not upgradable at all., 25 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am revising this review as I have had this item for some weeks now. So here it is.
As it comes - it works and works well.
Problems arise when Windows 10 wants to upgrade itself - it can't, there isn't enough space. So a SD card is the obvious answer. I bought a 64gb card. After 6 or 7 times of downloading Windows 10 upgrade and the machine attempting to install it, it finally did it, you have to tell it to use the SD card or a USB stick if you wish to save the downloaded upgrade. Should all be good now - nope. With limited space on the machine itself obviously the SD card would be the place to save downloaded apps. I go into Settings > System > Storage and it shows my SD card as drive D: There is a drop down box which SHOULD let you change the default download location for apps. but it is greyed out - can't be changed. So the SD card is useless.
This isn't the device's fault it is Windows 10.
I started of loving this device my enthusiasm is slowly ebbing away now.

What You See Is What You Get: My Autobiography
What You See Is What You Get: My Autobiography
Price: £2.29

4.0 out of 5 stars It's also a great insight into the world of manufacturing and business, 14 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thorough and detailed life of Lord Sugar. Humorous and witty. His early years and the Amstrad years were especially interesting but later he does Bang On a bit about football but this is informative to say the least. It's also a great insight into the world of manufacturing and business. Some of the stunts business people tried to pull and did pull on him are incredulous and eye-openers. Could also be a how-to guide in setting up a business.
Really liked the book and I could hear Lord Sugar recounting every word in my head. Not bad for a car aerial salesman.

3.0 out of 5 stars Semi-useful, 14 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Clamps are useful, magnification is useless. Haven't had any need to use LEDs. Soldering iron when placed in holder can cause item to topple over. Useful for me as a extra hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent DCC starter set., 13 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant train set, excellent for a DCC start up. Have since expanded it massively, not using track packs, second hand track is so cheap.
Software has a few niggles, needs updating a couple of times, then it can't find the DCC controller (in settings change port to com03, that is the usual port assigned by Windows in Device Manager but the software assigns a different port upon installation)
Good value set.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bought because it looks good but now don't know where to put it., 13 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A little pricey but a nice model. I originally thought I'd drop this on a farm but then I thought 'hang on there's no machinery for it to power.' I guess if the circus comes to town (pre-1940s) or there is a traction show (then I'd need more engines) it would fit. As of now I don't know what to do with it.
