Another fantastic Guy Browning book - though the fact that it was published in 1997 & i'm reading it in 2016, suggests that I might be beyind hope of it's help.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good comp but some build features have gone backwards, 2 Mar. 2016
Bought a new macbook recently to replace my last one which was on it's way out (3 years use) & then got damaged. I think it prob would have lasted longer if I hadn't started messing around with it.

Specs - according to "About this Mac": MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015) 2.7 GHz Intel Core 8 GB 1867 MHz DDR3 Intel Iris Graphics 6100 1536 MB

It runs El Capitan instead of Mavericks to Yosemite.

Overall - works well & looks pretty. The track pad doesn't seem as smooth but hopefully will bed in. The keyboard isn't nearly as good as my old Mac, it's flimsy & not so well backlit. The computer cost £899 from Currys, which was a £100 below the local Apple store.

Screen - bright, clear, vibrant, detailed

Sound - is ok. It comes out of the side, "side sound" or something, & can be enhanced with Boom. The sound on my last Mac was pretty rubbish & I could never understand why a choice would be made to compromise with sound quality.

Keyboard - the build quality is not as good as my last Mac, which is really disappointing. The keys are more flimsy and have a more tippy-tappy feel. The lights beneath them are random in their brightness eg. %/5 - bright, ^6 - not backlit. The top row seems to be alternate keys like this. The second row seems to be random & the rest of the keyboard is fairly standard backlit. I've no idea why it's like this & I think i'll check in an Apple shop, thinking about it.

Trackpad - the pad itself doesn't feel as smooth but hopefully will bed in.

Lead - they've changed the design of the power lead for some reason. Before it snapped to the side and the lead fed itself snugly round the comp, such that it was always in place. Now it pokes outwards, no longer fits snugly & is easy to knock out.

Plugs - Apple plugs are terrible, difficult to remove without forcing them from the socket

Other - It would be good if only the top blue bar moved, when checking it in full screen, guess there's some technical reason tho.

That's it really. It's basically the same as my last macbook, without a DVD drive and with a build quality that isn't as good. I'm assuming it's technically better. In general it's a really good computer.


Philips Travel Shaver PQ203/17 with Twin Rotary Heads and Travel Pouch
Philips Travel Shaver PQ203/17 with Twin Rotary Heads and Travel Pouch
Price: £12.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact & effective, 3 Dec. 2015
Really like this shaver so far. It's nearly as effective at the more expensive 3 rotary Philips shavers. Battery life is good. Two heads can be more effective in some ways, as it's easier to shave along the jawline. Comes in a nifty carrier case, with small brush to clean the shaver each time & headshell. Useful for everyday use & travel. In general - waterproof shavers are handy, electric shavers take a little getting used to but are worth it (anything to avoid the tyranny of the razor blade), while having a razor to hand is helpful for finishing touches (just as a hairdresser has more than one implement). Happy to recommend this product.

3.0 out of 5 stars At what point does Vine become dishonest?, 8 Sept. 2015
There are 48 reviews here that have been written by people who were given this product for free. That's FORTY EIGHT. That can't be right.

I bought one of these shavers elsewhere but had to return it as it it wasn't charging. I've had a different Phillips shaver for years, which is excellent. Electric shavers take a bit of getting used too but they're great once you do. Waterproof models are really useful.
