    "Excellent computer for general purpose work. I am working with the i7 with 1TB of storage - I bought the Pro 4 with i5 and 256GB and rapidly realized I under-purchased for my work."

    "Whoa that screen size would be fantastic for a software engineer. MORE CODE ON THE SCREEN! When the engineer decides to take a break from coding, he/she can relax with their favorite PC games since this will also handle those really well."
