4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised, 28 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pleasantly surprised at it's performance (especially considering the price!) Maybe not suitable as a high-end gaming device, but the performance viewing HD video is very good, and it copes fine with "sensible" applications such as "Office"

The machine itself is very quiet, with almost no HDD noise, and amazingly it stays cool with no fan noise, and the case is quite compact (about the same length and width of a large laptop, but 3x thicker.

Upgrade to Windows 10 worked fine but takes a while (even with my 100+ mbps connection) I left the upgrade running overnight, and it was ready to go the following morning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small and comfortable to carry, 15 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although quite small, it I can fit into it an 11.6 Macbook Air, Kindle, a paperback book and an A4 pad, so I can comfortably carry what I need with the minimum of weight and bulk.

Lowepro DSLR Video Fastpack 250 AW Quick Access Backpack for DSLR - Black
Price: £120.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Definetely "Quick Access", 15 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very happy with this, as unlike a conventional rucksack, the various compartments enable easy access to a wide range of equipment. At present I have it loaded loaded with 2 DSLRs, one compact, Macbook Air, Kindle Fire, 4 lenses, large flashgun and various leads, chargers, etc., with room to spare, and it is easy to select pick out the desired item without having to dig around inside the bag.

Clare Florist Grace Pink Roses Fresh Flower Bouquet - 20 Premium Pink Roses Ideal as a Gorgeous Gift
Price: £39.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Blooming happy, 15 Feb. 2015
Bouquet consisted of 20 flowers; As mentioned by previous reviewer, all the blooms were all more or less the same shade of pink, but this was not a problem for us and the flowers were in good condition - just as good as can be found at florists locally.

French Connection Men's Quartz Watch with Black Dial Analogue Display and Grey Stainless Steel Bracelet FC1116UM

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice design for older people too!, 12 Jun. 2013
Although a previous reviewer suggested that this watch is suitable if one is under 30, it is still worth considering if one is somewhat older. Display is clear (especially the date) and it is comfortble to wear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable and cool, 9 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very similar to the traditional "Jockey" Y-fronts. Snug fitting without being tight, and the waist band does not creep downwards (so less risk of "builder's crack"

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Feelings, 6 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A bit "gory" in parts, but an interesting story, and a relatively enjoyable read, but spoilt a little by geographical inaccuracies and typo errors. With better editing and proof-reading rating would have been 4 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brisk paced conspiracy theory, 1 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In common with most conspiracy theory plots this is (I hope!) based on fiction not fact, which allows some liberties to be taken with the descriptions of goverment and law-enforcement agencies. Allowing for this, this is an entertaining read, and does warn of the dangers of power and knowledge corrupting, so that sometimes good intentions can have poor outcomes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suitable for smaller dogs, 1 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Siuce is OK for smaller dogs (eg corgis, terriers) but to small for larger dogs such as retrievers. As a guide the maximum dump size these bags will hold is around half a banana.

Rolson 66521 40mm Weather-Resistant Padlock
Price: £3.30

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for the price, 1 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not a bad little padlock, but be aware thar the plastic sleeve makes the shank slightly thicker, so it can be a tight fit unless you use a hasp designede for a slighly larger padlock.
