    "A powerful laptop for on the go processing power. My Mac offers me the power of a desktop and lets me travel and work simultaneously. The display is high resolution, the cpu is fast and responsive for editing, plenty of RAM and HDD space, which is also upgradeable later on if you so choose. The only thing lacking would be the GPU, which is decent middle of the line, which is fine since most people don't game on them anyway."

    "My daughter was looking for a good laptop to run video games. Her current laptop was just too slow and would tend to heat up when she was running video-intensive games. She saved up and purchased this computer, and everything works a lot better - no overheating anymore and the games run great."

    "This laptop is exceptional. The extra security of a one-touch login and fingerprint sensor will make you feel secure while the Intel Core processor will run the computer at really fast speeds. I would however like to have a bigger GB memory and GB ram. Overall a great computer."

    "I wanted an i5 powered laptop, because I thought the 3 was too under-powered and the 7 was too much for what I use it for. This Acer does the job, and I never have had any problems with the processor. I sometimes play medium-resolution games, and I even software edit occasionally. The only thing I don't like about this laptop is the screen that bends back. It's just not a feature that I like or use very often."

    "I needed a simple laptop to take with me to school and this gets the job done. The laptop stays charged all day without having to plug it in once. It feels really sturdy that it will last for many, many years. The power of the laptop was really good and I'm amazed at how well it works and how smooth the display is."

    "After comparing all of the Core i5 laptops I could round up, I went with the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 370. I am very pleased with almost everything about this little powerhouse except for one thing. Battery life. I know that working while not plugged in isn't going to be as great as I thought it would be, but literally the thing dies within an hour. Maybe it some settings."

    "Something I've learned about laptops is that the processor or memory does not affect the display rendering power as much as the video card does, and this laptop does not have a high performance video card, closer to low medium performance. It's expensive enough so that you could find a better quality laptop with a better video card, but other than that issue the processor and amount of memory is standard for what is expected of modern laptops. Not too bad, not too good but could definitely do better for the price if you just look around."

    "This is an ok alternative for wacom's pen tablet, but still highly priced. It's nice how the pen (wacom EMR) and keyboard carry the legacy among the other model. it's important to note that you don't get the cursor where the pen tip touches experience because there is a huge air gap on the glass. Major setback and for the looks of it, Fujitsu doesn't fix this issue as new models come out. "
