    "Although it's no the most current 8th gen chips, you simply can't beat the Dell XPS here for the price. The 4K panel is gorgeous and there is also a touch display (if you are into that). Programming and rendering is a breeze thanks to the beefy GTX 1050 gpu it has. The battery life is pretty bad, but plugged in on a desk, this thing soars!"

    "This laptop is pretty good for Android programming. Good matte screen for working long hours, Core i7 Skylake, and SSD drive. The graphics card is not top of the line anymore, but it is not too far behind (GTX 960M). If you are a game dev and have intense graphics you might want to go with a better card, but if you are working on basic mobile games this suits well."

    "Like others have noted, the specs in the product listing aren't all correct. It's a 2016 model, 3.3 GHz i7, 16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3 RAM, 512 GB SSD (but only registers ~500 GB - Mac has a funny way of calculating capacity), and Intel Iris 550 graphics with 1.5 GB mem. I've only had it for a few days. So far so good. I was debating between this and the ASUS Zenbook Deluxe 3 (latest model). The ASUS specs are better, except for the display resolution. But Mac does have a better reputation of lasting longer. Hopefully paying for premium saves me some headaches in the long run."

    "The Acer Aspire AO725-0687 hands down is the best laptop if you are in the field of Android programming. This laptop can handle just about anything you need to do. The great thing is that its also a very affordable laptop. This is the rare event where the laptop is extremely affordable yet, overall can do everything. This almost feels like you are stealing this laptop at this price. Once you get down to work on your new laptop you will know exactly why I am talking about."

    "For the price of $600, this is an excellent device. Quad core i5 CPU and 8 gig of rams makes this an excellent device for work and casual use. The graphic card is a standard Intel HD graphics; you can think of this as the worst graphic performance compared to the cheapest NVIDIA card. If you are looking for a laptop that is capable of gaming, then look else where"
