    "Perfect for dedicated coding and not much else, if that's what you're looking for. Graphics card is dedicated so don't expect much use in 3d applications. For strictly coding a much cheaper ThinkPad would probably be a much better value. Screen is very crisp and detailed. "

    " This laptop has 32 GB (If you buy extra memory). There have been some reports of problems with the WiFi card. (spotty reception and if you try to replace card it struggles). Maybe wait on this one."

    "I do a lot of programming for my day job and so I wanted to get a "desktop replacement" type of laptop that I could code on the go so to speak. For the most part, I really enjoy ASUS products and so I decided to try the ASUS Zenbook UX360CA-UBM1T. Now, as a laptop for purely doing work this one is quite decent. It runs everything I need (e.g. programming IDEs, compilers etc.) without issue. If I had any complaints I'd say that they keyboard could be somewhat better and preferably backlit. It has a nice rotatable touchscreen but I really don't use it all that often as my work doesn't require me to. I don't really think you can go wrong with this laptop given the price point."

    "I do a lot of coding and needed a cheap laptop for this. I was going through different sites checking reviews and prices. I came across the ZenBook Pro and it's so amazing. It has great specs and basically runs everything I throw at it. It's perfect. I would highly recommend it. "

    "This HP laptop is barely decent in my honest opinion. I am really not a fan of the low processing speed as it's the biggest decider as to whether or not your system will be fast or slow when doing certain tasks on the computer. The lower the processing speed the worse your performance so buyers need to be wary."

    "So far this computer has far exceeded my expectations for the price. I don't do any online gaming, but it handles Skyrim on full HD without a single problem. Like most laptops, I'm not overly impressed with the speakers, but seeing as that's my only complaint, this thing definitely deserves five stars. "

    "I've recently begun dual booting both Ubuntu, and Windows on my Aspire. It shipped with windows, and I formatted it in favor of Ubuntu for my Dev work. Then I took on some new work involving windows, and decided to dual boot. This machine handles both flawlessly, and seems to have a great balance of features...because I haven't even come close to thinking of a replacement for it!"

    "This surfacepro was on the low end for specs and you can choose it with much more storage and ram if your needs are different from mine. I found that this unit lags a little more than I would like but is ample for basic daly needs. I know my friend does drafting and has higher specs and hers is much more fluid. if you need more specs on board there are tons of options and the quality and workmanship is great with a sleek design."

    "This laptop isn't great if you need to use it a lot - heavy usage and lots of apps is going to slow it down. There isn't as much ram as in other comparable laptops, but it is lightweight. If you want a laptop to carry around and work anywhere it is a good one for that as long as you aren't expecting too much heavy use or memory-heavy use cases. Aside from that though if you are looking to use this laptop for lighter things such as just internet surfing or paper writing it is a pretty good one and you can't go wrong with samsung."
