    "For the gamer on the go, Lenovo Legion Y520 is a sleek laptop that visually looks stunning and solid performance for its price. May you be a parent looking to purchase your child with a gaming laptop that can play today's games or a gamer that has a budget of under $1,000 (base model), the Lenovo Legion Y520 offers surprisingly more bang for the buck. The base model version uses a Core i5-7300HQ CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 1TB 5,400-rpm hard drive and an Nvidia GTX 1050Ti with 4GB of VRAM. And for most gamers who want to play games in 1080p and 60 fps, today's games will play just fine."

    "If gaming is your forte then the Acer Predator 15 G9 595 77WF might be for you. The Acer is packed with software that makes your gaming experience more entertaining. The graphics are great as is the sound system. The Frost Core device is helpful but can be loud at times."

    "This laptop kind of sucks for CUDA dev work. While it just barely can do it I really suggest something with a dedicated GPU. "

    "The HP Envy 17t is a high-end laptop and it's hard to find any reason to complain about it. It's absolutely capable of CUDA development, even though it's tuned more towards everyday use or entertainment use. It has a fast processor so it never lags and the keyboard is very comfortable to type on. It is a little pricey if your main reason for getting it is CUDA, but it's an amazing all-around device."
