Apple Keyboard (MB110B/B) by Apple
5.0 out of 5 stars Thin but solid, 28 Jun 2011
I have been using this laptop for about 2 years now. It is a very solid piece of hardware and deserves full recomendations.

Build and connections:
The keyboard is made out of anodized aluminum which feels extremely solid. It has zero flex while managing to be extremely thin. The keys are chiclet style and don't fobble around needlessly. It is also large enough to not feel cramped. On the back fo the keyboard there is a little bar with two USB 2.0 ports on both sides of the laptop. The two USB ports are handy for not only mouse, but for easy deposit of pictures from camera, loading your mp3 etc.

Ergonomics:

5.0 out of 5 stars Unmatched book, 27 Dec 2010
After reading it and enjoying it the whole time, I must say that Decameron is a book that will entertain you: the tone is light and the stories are all entertaining. It is a book you can easily dip in and out without losing much. Considering the nature of the book, the main characters are all developed well.

The penguin edition is brilliant: it comes with comprehensive notes and heavy introduction.

Fully recommended.

As many have said: this book is very funny. It really got me in and kept there right till the end. The writing was at the style which I had never read before, making the first 100 or so pages just getting used. But once I got used, I started to enjoy it in full force.

Now what I really loved about this book was the progression of the story: the first half is very light-hearted, but in the end, it gets more and more serious, culminating in the excellent chapter "Eternal city". That one worked astoundingly well there in contrast to the previous ones.

The ending left me smiling. It isn't often I can devour literature of this level.
