    "My daughter has been using a MacBook for college for several years now and I'd been playing around with hers. I've always had a windows laptop before but was really impressed with her device. Decided to bite the bullet and make the switch to Appleland. Sure glad I did. I love this MacBook. I probably will never switch back to windows. Give it a try."

    "This is a decent machine for programming. You can run an emulator to program iOS in Windows, so that isn't an issue. However, you will still need a Mac to actually upload it. With the price tag on this at just under $1800, if you are developing exclusively for iOS, I would spend the money on a Mac. If you develop for PC as well, it is worth considering."

    "The i3 is a little underpowered these days, and it has onboard graphics so don't expect to be testing your game on it, but it's great and affordable low-mid range for coding. I would recommend at least an i5 and 1050 for app development."

    "So far this computer has been great! It is quite light, compared to my previous Asus laptop, boots up in less than 30 seconds, has great battery when not gaming, remains cool when gaming and has a great feel to its keyboard. Some small cons: I feel the mousepad could be slightly better but I never use it so I don't really care. Also, having to get an installation toolkit for Acer to add more storage memory is a little annoying."

    "For the past few years I have been traveling across the country by plane and I am constantly having to pull out my old laptop that is heavy and annoying to use the internet or get work done while traveling across the USA. I was looking for a compact and easy to use laptop that has good memory and a powerful graphics card. I found this amazing laptop while shopping online called the ASUS K501UW-AB78 that automatically connects to the internet and is amazing for iOS and application development. I have learned how to use the dozens of different functions for monitoring and controlling the various servers I use for managing my online business. I record all sorts of customer data and it is helping me intuitively optimize my business model. This laptop is incredibly powerful because it features a i7 Intel Core processor with a robust cooling system. Thank you ASUS for keeping my business performing smoothly!!"
