5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
one of the best AI books that simply states the facts and where and when to use these fact. The chapters on Hierarchical Task Network's are great and fairly easy to understand.

Great book and worth the £50.

5.0 out of 5 stars exactly what is says it is., 9 Jun. 2013

thicker than i thought it would be and softer, some laptop case are all scratchy but this kinda feels like velvet.laptop fits snug, with a tiny bit of breathing room so other items (wireless mouse use adapters) can fit in with it with out the feeling that it will scratch the laptop.

feels like it will not fall apart, zip feel sturdy and strong, NO strap for it, but this was not stated anyway. thanks digitrade

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing amazing amazing - a must for a game programmer, 6 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this book got me through my university degree, it has everything you will need and it is written in plain english. he just states the facts and some interesting stuff that you should know. he skips out all the stuff that is irrelevant. the chapters on collision detection are great, bit hard to understand, but he states equations and what they are actually used for, such as the most efficient way to check to see if objects collide in 2D space, simple gcse maths but at gcse they just tell you to figure it out and you dont know why. frankly this book should be at a lot higher price, also look at Real-Time Rendering - this also got me through my degree.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing laptop - shame its windows 8, 6 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
the product description stated it came with 64gig of SSD (solid state drive) but only came with 16gig, told amazon and they gave me 10% of which is there normal refund price if you wanna keep the product - so check your machines. Blue ray drive is abit loose but i have heard this for all lenovo y580 laptops so i dont think its just my machine, it must just be bad design - it still works a treat thought, and tested the screen and blueray player with avatar - OH MY GOD - it is so crisp!!! better than my 1080p 50inch plasma and playstation. as for speed its amazing, I programme windows phone apps and it does not struggle, i have had been playing super meat boy (game) while visual studio was open on another screen downloaded 4 gig of documents and updates, nothing flickered and ran smooth. the price is very steep, but for an all out power machine which has a better graphics card than the new Xbox and the playerstation 4, and frankly more RAM, you can not complain.
BAD POINTS - Keyboard is abit tricky because of small SHIFT Key, took some getting ust to, the track pad is weird, if i took the time to properly set it up and learn how to use it then it will be amazing (i think / hope) but any cheap mouse is better, windows 8 is such an utter pain, i had a whole system crash and had to reinstall everything, luckily i made a back up(if you get this machine, make a backup to an external drive before doing anything else, if i didnt, i would have lost all my lenovo pre installed software, which are pretty good) - no disks included with laptop so have to make own repair disk, which is simple enough after reading a thousand websites because of windows 8,
One last thing - it comes with an CLEANING OPTIONS, this turns the fan on full blast to clean out the machine, never seen this before and think its awesome! - also the function keys that lenovo do are great, learn these first!! i turned the display down untill it was off, but could not turn it back up because i could not see the mouse, but the lenovo function keys allow you to do this. anyway great laptop, expensive but great
