    "I did not buy this computer for gaming but for programming. Straight out of the box it the best ASUS computer. It has a 2tb hard drive disk so don't worry about running out of space and will be able to keep up with pretty much everything that you throw at it. A 16 GB DDR4 SDRAm and NVIDIA GEForce GTX 980 co-processor. Ran without any problems and is an open canvas for programming."

    "I'm not impressed with the longevity of this desktop. It was a fine desktop that I had made some modifications to, but I couldn't believe that it completely died on me. I've never had a desktop that wouldn't survive a nuclear winter and outlive humankind, so it really makes me question the quality of this product."

    "My daughter wanted to get into programming. I told her she would have to build her own computer, but she did not want to for a hobby that she might not enjoy or have any talent for. I agreed that she had a point, and bought her the ASUS VivoPC M32CD-B09. She says it has all the features she needs to have a streamlined, easy programming experience."

    "Isn’t it great to see new computers being shipped with SSDs now? We’re living in the future, folks! This is basically a really compact PC case. If you need to lug your PC around instead of owning a laptop (There are dozens of us! Dozens!) this is the thing you want to buy. It’s super modular, really easy to replace any of the components, so you can upgrade it to meet your needs. It’s quiet, has low heat & power consumption, cools really well so you can run monster high-graphics games on it without it breaking a sweat. I strongly recommend upgrading to a 2x SSD setup instead of a disk drive. I personally *carry* this to meetings sometimes and just plug it into a monitor that’s already set up, but if you don’t have bizarre work requirements, you should still consider this: it’s a great P.C. even if you don’t need the small size. I can’t think of any downsides compared to a traditional large-case design. "

    "Asus just never fails me. If you are looking for good quality and good customer support, it's a great brand to go with. If you are going with prebuilt for your gaming box, this one is a good choice. "

    " Everything runs perfectly smooth on this PC. This is because the graphics card is one of the top of the line, has enough Ram and speed to satisfy most programs. Next is the handy SSD drive, SSD is about 10-20x faster than regular hard drive in read speeds, so your programs run faster. What this computer does is that it removes any bottlenecks a computer to have, and gives you a well-rounded PC experience, which other manufacturers don't do. I also love the form factor that it takes a lot less space, I was able to fit it in the smallest of spaces.so it is one of the best desktop to use."

    "I needed a desktop for programming and someone suggested the Acer Aspire AZ3-715 to me. After looking up the spec's I decided to give it a buy and I have not been disappointed yet. The screen size is more than adequate for my programming needs and it has a big hard drive and plenty of ram for multi tasking while programming. "

    "I'm speaking only on a user-friendliness level. I have four laptops going in our house, all working off a wifi-device. Not all at the same time, but all work when they are in use, as well as printers and a scanner. This one has a hard time connecting to the internet. It does, but it takes some time, and that's when none of the other items are on."

    "This computer is highly rated with 4.1 stars with over 850 reviews. It is also fairly priced. Reading the comments, many users have used this computer for programming and even coding.

    "This desktop will get your feet wet into programming. Anything more and it will be brought to a halt. I currently am a video game designer, and I can tell you with this experience plus working with computer hardware for my entire life, this computer simply isn't enough. The only way to afford something powerful enough for what you need is to build it yourself. Check out a Ryzen 5 cpu, ddr4 ram, and say a gtx 1060 graphics card. That entire computer you can buy the parts for that I listed for under $1000 and have a far more powerful and modern system."
