    "For the price, this laptop is not worth it whatsoever. The CPU is extremely low-grade and slow; I can barely run a couple simple low activity programs. There is also barely any RAM and it ends up causing issues with different process such as my browser."

    "I recently bought an Alienware AW17R4-7005SLV-PUS to be used as programming machine for Java, and I'm really happy with my choice. I never saw it slowing down, and having 16GB of RAM surely helped.. I suggest it to everyone with a good budget for an excellent laptop."

    "when the big Acer 15.6" is perched on my lap, it's FANTASTIC! The dual speakers on the front to the left and right of the keyboard are AWESOME! The sound quality is absolutely INCREDIBLE-- best sound I've ever heard from a laptop-- the stereo separation sounds ESPECIALLY good when it's on your lap. I envision this Acer Chromebook providing many years of great service. Update after a few days use-- The speed and the quality of the Acer 15 are STUNNING. Paging through web pages is SO smooth and fast, especially as compared to doing the same on my MacBook Pro (which I upgraded to 8gig and a 1TB SSD drive). Also, the keyboard on the Acer 15 is much more comfortable than the one on my MacBook Pro"

    "HP 14-inch Chromebook HD SVA, although it may be rooted in programming capabilities as one if it's only selling points, rendering and previewing animations or games in Java from the programs written may prove to be an issue with Intel Dual Core Celeron processor technology, it is ancient."

    "This laptop is speedy enough for me to use it to run code. The storage isn't huge but I'd say it's pretty adequate for the average user. It feels nice and has good specs. I'd wholeheartedly recommend it."
