    "Why am I recommending the Surface Pro 4 to a game developer when its not a "gaming computer?" Because if you are writing code, you want something that is comfortable for long hours and doesn't give you headaches. This thing is slick, has a fantastic keyboard and trackpad, great multi-touch, etc. Basically it's just a joy to use."

    "This is a pretty good option for game development if you arent able to get something better. I find that when something functions as a tablet and as a computer it tends to cause issues with crossover. This functions properly, of course, but I feel there are better options out there."
