1.0 out of 5 stars Great laptop until you have to deal with Apple, 24 Oct 2013
This is a great machine until you have anything to do with Apple. Can't set up an Apple ID without a credit card! Can't close an Apple ID account. Software updates don't work. Apple is so restrictive so it won't talk to an Android phone. I only have a Macbook because I was given one for work. Apple support is terrible. If you want to go beyond the bonds of Apple's walled garden don't bother.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written fictional account, 7 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this poorly written and unconvincing. Ok, the major events probably took place to her and her family but this is a fictional recreation of the events, probably using information and history from other relatives and friends. Can a five year (?) really remember that much detail? What the KR did was appalling and the suffering they caused is undeniable but spare me having to read about it through the eye's of a five year old.
I did buy this through Amazon UK as it was cheaper that buying it in a local bookshop in Phnom Penh. Although now I wish I had spent $3 and bought a photocopied version from one of the street kids on the Riverside area of Phnom Penh.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cliches and Stereotypes, 18 Nov 2012
This review is from: Ghost Money (Kindle Edition)
Journalist really shouldn't think that just because the can write articles and stories for newspapers they can also write fiction. The plot is weak and boring and is probably the result of a few spiked stories from his days in Cambodia and Bangkok. The characters are shallow and stereotypes, especially all the clichéd people in Phnom Penh. This is a disappointing book all round.

2.0 out of 5 stars Apple is not that good, 9 Aug 2012
Great. It is fast for music programs. For Ableton it beats anything else. But unfortunately you have to out put up with other restrictive Apple policies. iTunes is a very poor quality music player and compresses your music so that 75% of the is lost file (quality is lost). You then need to download an alternative MP3 or WAV player that Apple makes it difficult to use.
If you want to use an Android phone well good luck, Again the video won't download on to your Apple Mac if the sound quality is poor but it will download on a PC or to Youtube.
If I pay this much for a Laptop I expect better.
Good luck to Samsung and Sony.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor support. Poor Software, 3 Aug 2012
I have spent two days trying to download a 3.99 book. It doesn't work via my Mac. Customer support is poor with no reply. I regret buying this. I downloaded it 8 times> Each time a message appeared stating download failed and I should delete the file and download again. 8 times. I think the down load is successful but has the book has not appeared on the Kindle, no! Stick to Apple and get an iPad.
