3.0 out of 5 stars Simple and tasty, however beware of the salt content, 20 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The recipes presented in this book are thoroughly enjoyable and easy to prepare. However I found several of the dishes simply too salty for my tastes. Many of the recipes are quite liberal with both the fish sauce and the soy, both of which add to the salt content. I suggest perhaps halving the quantities describes and perhaps replacing the missing liquid with either water or stock.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor, 6 Jun 2011
Mine was scuffed and scratched when it arrived, indicating at some point it was returned.

Whilst it works fine as a stand and charger, the sole reason I bought it was to plug the Apple Digital AV Adaptor in and use it to stream both music and movies to my AV system via HDMI. This does not work. Not only is the internal speaker disabled, but any sound output through the dock connector is also disabled. I was only left with a poor quality headphone signal, as opposed to the line-level outputs I had been expecting.

Guess I shall have to bite the bullet and pay substantially more for the genuine Apple product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality for the price, 21 Dec 2010
For the price, I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of these plugs. Instead of a single screw, two screws are used which can therefore grip both the wire and the insulation, giving a nice snug fit.

Easily accommodates my 2.5mm speaker cable and could probably hold larger diameter cable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little performer and looks good to boot, 21 Dec 2009
This netbook is probably the best purchase I have made in a while. It is feather-light, comparatively rugged, looks gorgeous (if you are into that sort of thing), with a nice keyboard and well designed tactile touchpad. As an IT Developer, who is used to a lot of typing, I can happily work at speed on this machine. The screen is clear, uniformly well-lit and is readable at quite wide angles. In addition, for its size and specification, it performs relatively well, especially on AC power.

Many people buy these machines expecting a fully featured laptop, coupled with the associated additional performance. If you are looking at these machines simply to surf the internet, write the odd word processing document and send and receive emails, look no further. If however you are planning on using this machine to run Photoshop or perform other intensive tasks, then you will be sorely disappointed.

I have yet to try and perform a RAM upgrade, but do not expect it to be any more difficult than many other slimline laptops. Asus have also removed the warranty exclusion if you try and upgrade the internals. Put simply, you don't void anything by opening it up.

The burgundy red has an almost metallic look to it and looks simply stunning. However regular use of the included cleaning cloth is necessary to eliminate those pesky fingerprints. I was also pleasantly surprised by the included neoprene case. There is no need to buy an additional carry case with this netbook.

Overall, I would highly recommend this netbook.

4.0 out of 5 stars Needs a bit of breaking in, 24 Oct 2007
Out of the wrapper, I could not get the clasp to close when used with my 720. I had to do a fair bit of "stretching" the leather. Even now it takes some work and fiddling to get it to close. That said I primarily bought the case to protect the screen, which it does a fine job of.
