    "This is a business ultrabook and very expensive. Comes with Windows 10 Pro, decent memory and a sleek design. I feel there is something a little less expensive on the market that is just as good and would fit needs besides this "

    "The specs on this one speak for themselves: 8 GB memory, 2400MHz, 256 GB storage. But the thing about this is the screen. The large screen is because the bezel is so small (thin?) - it makes working on it pretty great. I bought this computer a few months ago and use it all the time for work. I couldn't ask for a better experience. "

    "I would not recommend the HP Chromebook 13 G1 as one of the best laptops for mobile app development. Chromebooks are limited in their resources for dev, but growing. It failed when I needed to implement advanced methodologies."

    "Being a big fan of Alienware, the AW1R4 series offers every gaming and development element of importance. The wireless network capability and solid state drive make this piece of hardware a beautiful experience, That said, it is not my first choice for mobile app development for which a touchscreen is a deal breaker.

    "I like to develop mobile apps every now and then as a hobby, so I wanted a laptop that's powerful enough to do it. ASUS K501UW-AB78 is an overkill, to be honest, with its i7 and 16 GB of RAM, this beast is good for doing pretty much anything."
