    "I recently needed to get a cheap Linux laptop for programming. I didn't really have time to research my options, and I ended up buying the Dell Inspiron 15 3000. I really regret that I had to make a decision so quickly. I have had so many problems with this laptop in the two months I have owned it. Maybe I just got a lemon, but judging by the reviews I have read since then, I doubt it. I wouldn't recommend this laptop."

    "I don't think this is the best option for a cheap linux laptop for programming. This is a gaming laptop and is more expensive then a less powerful laptop which would be better if you are just gonna use it for programming."

    "This is an extreme laptop mostly aimed at Gamers looking for performance and high-end graphics. This is the laptop I wish I had 10 years ago as it can basically do anything and run any program. The speed on this thing is incredible, I can play music, stream movies to my TV and play online games without missing a beat. This laptop is a little pricey but it was a present to myself and I don't regret any of it. The quality of the graphics and the speed of the processor make it possible to do anything without the problem of lag."

    "While this is a pretty good laptop, I wouldn't recommend it to someone just wanting a budget piece for programming. Too much of the money is sunk into the GPU and other specs that wouldn't help for much besides gaming."
