    "I am writing this on a MacBook Air right now with the exact same specs. I love this laptop, it is extremely light and easy to carry around without feeling heavy. It is extremely thin. I like the backlit keyboard. Be advised it does not have ports, it only has a spot for earphones and charging. If you want to plug something in via USB it is done through the charger. The charger has an attachment that allows many types of ports. This laptop is the best laptop for college. "

    "Surface Pro is the most versatile laptop. We’re excited about its improvements over previous generations, such as: It’s lighter weight & thinner than all our other Surface Pros. It features longer battery life – 13.5 hours! That’s 50% more than Surface Pro 4 and 68% more than Surface Pro 3. You’ll get better performance with a 7th Generation (Kaby Lake) Processor. It;s the latest processor from Intel, and it’s a laptop-grade processor (rather than a mobile-grade processor). Surface Pro is 2.5x faster than Surface Pro 3! It’s quieter: The Core M and i5 models don’t have a fan (unlike our Surface Pro 3 and Pro 4), and the i7 model has improved hybrid cooling. It has a more immersive acoustic experience thanks to newly redesigned front-facing speakers. Writing is even easier with the next-generation hinge, which folds all the way down to 15 degrees (“Studio Mode”) so you can use the Pen most naturally."

    "This is an impressive machine even if you're not a gamer. It looks great,it feels great and it is fast and powerful. I've seen other comments suggesting its not a true gaming laptop but I would argue ti depends on what games you are playing and how much money you want to spend. If you're comparing this to a high-end gaming laptop with an equally high-end price then yes its not in that category. But really the people that are that serious about their gaming are kind of in a different category anyway. My son plays Dota on a regular basis and gets a consistent 100 to 120 fps which I think would be more than adequate for most people. Gaming aside, this is just a great, powerful laptop, period. We've owned other Asus laptops in the past and what I've always been impressed with is the quality. This laptop is no exception. I watch full 1080p HD videos with this and its just impressive quality and the sound is also way above average quality. I also love that the keyboard lights up. Its a small thing but its not all that common. The machine itself is lightweight and has a very solid feel to it and I especially like the keyboard"

    "I have MacBook pro 13” 2013. It was good when I attended college and design courses several years ago. For today I work as a writer, also I assist students with their college homework, thesis papers and essays via this site, so it’s more than enough to write texts and exchange letters. However 13’’ is not so heavy to have it everywhere with me, but I'd prefer a macbook air 13". I’m not engaged in professional design and construction now, so maybe the newer would be more powerful for work."
