Offered by WOWOOO
Price: £79.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely comfortable, easy to use, 4 Oct. 2015
Extremely comfortable, easy to use, adjust and maintain. I use it weekly for a long run of around 2 hours. There is no movement of the pack, it is light and drinking is very easy. Useful pockets without adding to the bulk of the vest. Very pleased with my purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great watch - takes a bit of getting used to, 27 April 2014
Pros:

+ Fast to find satellites (thanks to caching of positions)
+ HRM gives smooth and accurate readings
+ New running dynamics metrics (cadence, ground contact and vertical oscillation) are useful

Cons:

+ Wifi transfer is temperamental (needs some more work on firmware)
+ Colour on screen is nothing like marketing material (it all looks grey too me and fairly dim to be honest)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for money - good performance and looks, 30 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I spent a good deal of time researching options for a new laptop to be my main home computer. I'm not a gamer but wanted something powerful enough to do multitasking and photo editing. I didn't want a fashion statement but also didn't want a slab of plastic. And most of all, I wanted great value for money.

My early impressions are that this Samsung laptop meets or exceeds all my criteria.

It looks modern and stylish, though is clearly plastic not metal. It boots really quickly to Windows 8. I have downloaded, installed and run all of my day-to-day applications (browser, music player, word processor, photo editor) and it has not missed a beat. I like the matt (not shiny or glossy) screen.

At this price point (£429.99 when purchased on 27 Dec) I don't think there is a better offer out there at the moment.

Classical Mechanics: A Modern Introduction
Classical Mechanics: A Modern Introduction
by Martin W. McCall

4.0 out of 5 stars A very accessible introduction to mechanics, 11 May 2003
McCall writes in a style that is very accessible to 1st Year Undergraduates and he is very thorough and methodical. The book is suited perfectly to those embarking on their first course in undergraduate physics - an excellent introduction to the rigour of university level study.
However, if you are looking for a text to merely dip in and out of, then this book may not be for you, since some of the notation and derivations are not standard - and it does not contain any advanced topics.

4.0 out of 5 stars A simple, well explained introduction to statistical physics, 29 April 2003
The first noticiable feature about this book is its size... it's really quite small and thin... and you may well find yourself questioning if it is worth its price tag.
The answer depends on what you are looking for.
If you are looking for a simple, well explained introduction to the BASICS of statistical physics, then this book could well be for you. It is well structured and logical, without too much detail.
Therefore, if you are looking for an indepth or advanced text on statistical physics then you will probably not be satisfied by this book.
Indeed, although I am only a second year undergraduate physics student I found myself regularly having to look beyond this book for satisfactory information.
