    "This is a very nice Asus laptop at an extremely reasonable price. But in terms of programming, the processor is not going to b powerful enough for what most programmers need and this could prove to be a frustrating purchase."

    "Price, let's get that out of the way right now. It's a decent one, but at the end of the day you're going to have to make the choice. What kind of programming will you be doing? Because certain kinds will stress out your CPU and in some cases, even give the GPU a run for its money. So if it's casual, if it's CPU based and so forth, this is a solid purchase."

    "When I told my husband I wanted a new laptop so I can take my programming on the go, I'm not sure he knew what I was talking about. He bought me this laptop for my birthday, and while it looks nice - it's designed more for the gaming crowd with the latest graphics card. Yes, my programming can get done, but this laptop has so many extra bells and whistles that I don't plan on using (including a backlit keyboard - I guess in case I code at night?), I could have gotten a different laptop that does the same programming job for half of the price. "
