    "When my loyal laptop of five years took an unfortunate tumble off my balcony and down to the concrete five floors below (don't ask...), I needed a replacement. I needed something that could handle everything I would put it through AND not break the bank. This little beaut does it. The Intel Core processor doesn't skip a beat, and the 8GB DDR4 RAM works great for me (there's also an SSD option available if that's more your flavor). It doesn't hold up to super heavy programming like my desktop at work in extended sessions, but definitely gets the job done."

    "This is a pretty interesting device. It doesn't fit in my pocket like my other tablets do, but other than that it sort of works like the tablet. Except it's faster and more usable like a computer is. My other tablets act like my phone with how they run things; this runs like a laptop, but otherwise I can hold it and use it like a tablet. It's a pretty fun combination. I love how the screen moves and folds and twists; it makes it so easy to use collaboratively with others. I'm thinking of suggesting these to my boss for use in the warehouse."

    "WARNING. If you buy this laptop you it will crash constantly and you will lose your work. Ok, maybe not but I have never in my life seen a more dysfunctional computer. How the hell did they make this thing? The raw stats of the thing seems fine but this thing is falling apart at the seams. This computer won't do heavy anything."

    "The i7 Skylake in this laptop is a beast. You can program without hitches or slowing easily, a very good purchase for the price. The specs really can't be beat for the price."

    "Generally this products gets great reviews from Amazon reviewers. However, when looking into the reviews further I see that processing speed is a common complaint, which would be a severe hindrance for computer programming. "

    "I feel pretty "meh" about this laptop. It doesn't have much in terms of "bells and whistles," but it's been generally reliable so far. One thing I've noticed that I don't like is that it seems to heat up A LOT. Besides the heating issue, it offers a fair amount of storage, and having a SSD is a definite bonus!"
