    "Not a bad little machine for programming. I came from an era where all you needed was a text editor and a compiler, so I'm really happy with any computer which goes beyond that. This one definitely does. The processor is fast and the memory is adequate, though the hard drive is a little smaller than I would have liked."

    "I do a lot of computer programing so I have to love my computer. I decided to try the HP Spectre 13. While I like the weight and size of the computer, the screen is just too small. I think this computer may work for some, but it didn't work for me. "

    "Ive been a pc gamer for many years but my laptop gave out a few months ago and I needed a new laptop to run my favorite games.

Now I can play league of legends, overwatch, destiny 2 in very high frame rates without any hardware issues. "

    "Very fast laptop for programming! This laptop would fit any programming needs. It's also got a touchscreen which is a plus. I thought I wouldn't, but I use the touchscreen all the time. In fact when I use my other laptop I find myself touching the screen because I forget it doesn't have one. This has been a real workhorse for me and it's a great price!"
