Computer Organization and Design, Fifth Edition: The Hardware/Software Interface (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Computer Architecture and Design)
  • Used Book in Good Condition

The fifth edition of Computer Organization and Design-winner of a 2014 Textbook Excellence Award (Texty) from The Text and Academic Authors Association-moves forward into the post-PC era with new examples, exercises, and material highlighting the emergence of mobile computing and the cloud. This generational change is emphasized and explored with updated content featuring tablet computers, cloud infrastructure, and the ARM (mobile computing devices) and x86 (cloud computing) architectures.

Because an understanding of modern hardware is essential to achieving good performance and energy efficiency, this edition adds a new concrete example, "Going Faster," used throughout the text to demonstrate extremely effective optimization techniques. Also new to this edition is discussion of the "Eight Great Ideas" of computer architecture.

As with previous editions, a MIPS processor is the core used to present the fundamentals of hardware technologies, assembly language, computer arithmetic, pipelining, memory hierarchies and I/O.

    Digital version is junk, February 13, 2015

    The content of this book is definitely good, but the digital packaging of it is utter crap. This book is designed as a textbook, and as such, when my professor refers to page numbers, I would expect to be able to simply go to the specified page.

    Except I can’t. Because the digital version is just one long manuscript. One of my friends purchased the actual physical book, and not only does it have page numbers (as it should), the layout itself is both quite different and far superior.

    Bottom line, unless they fix the incredibly poor formatting of the digital version, get the physical one if you’re using at as a textbook.

    Extremely obvious errors left in text, September 22, 2015

    This review is from: Computer Organization and Design, Fifth Edition: The Hardware/Software Interface (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Computer Architecture and Design) (Paperback)
    I’m in the middle of homework, and went to reference the IEEE 754 double precision floating point format. The first mention of this in the book is wrong, on page 198 it says that the exponent field is 11 bits, and not two centimetres away has a diagram showing the field with 12 bits.

    On a previous chapter, page 69, the first introduction the book gives to arrays of words in memory is wrong, with the ‘lw’ address being calculated incorrectly.

    Unacceptable on a book in its fifth revision.

    This review is from: Computer Organization and Design, Fifth Edition: The Hardware/Software Interface (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Computer Architecture and Design) (Paperback)
    The book is informative, however there are no solutions to the end-of-chapter exercises, which makes it impossible to check your work.

    This review is from: Dell Optiplex 745 Computer Package – 2.8 Pentium D Dual Core – 2GB – 17″ LCD – Windows 7 Home Premium – Keyboard, Mouse (Personal Computers)
    This is a very nice PC for the price including monitor. The mouse, keyboard and speakers are all Very cheap and basic but you can get better ones for just a little money at any pc store. The main PC and monitor are very nice and pretty fast. The hard drive is not a mammoth for storage but it is fine for the average home user. Overall I would give this a great rating for the price and quality of merchandise.

    This computer package is amazing!! It arrived in immaculate condition, and ready to plug in and go. I bought it for my 16 year-old grandson, who needed a reliable computer for schoolwork, and this exceeded our hopes! It had Windows 7, a recovery disk, and a warrenty! I would highly recommend these refurbished computer packages to anyone! Thank you!!

    I purchased this computer because I was beginning a work at home job that required me to have a desktop computer. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money and I couldn’t believe this deal for a computer with monitor for less than $300. I’m using it right now as I type this… I am praying that I can find another one to buy for my niece and nephews for Christmas this year.
