    "BUYER BEWARE. I had issue after with the Zenbook Pro and was forced to send it back multiple times. All in all, 11 components of the laptop had to be replaced. To make matters worse, all of the issues started occurring just after the one year warranty had run out, so I had to take care of the expenses out of my own pocket. Just this past week the battery no longer holds a charge, so I have to leave it plugged in full time."

    "The thing is a beast. It'll flop all your heaps while trilinear aliasing your polygon meshes. Simply put; It'll do everything you want while making you a cup of coffee. Would you get a better system if you moved to a desktop? Sure, but who doesn't want to play Rainbow 6 Siege in the middle of a programming lecture?!"

    "This is a demanding machine, both in terms of its specifications and its pricetag. I needed something to work my job as a programmer on the go, and get some gaming done since I love video games but often can't be home in front of my desktop rig. This has a top of the line video card and its super quick. It handles almost everything I can throw at it on max settings."

    "This is my first experience with Lenovo, I usually go with Dell, but I bought this on the recommendation of my son and daughter in law. I don't do the games like they do, but my grandson does when he's at my house and this laptop works great for him when playing Roadblox and other games. For me I love the sleek look of the black with the red color scheme. The keyboard has a nice feel to it and the speakers and display are great."

    "Delivery was quick. However, as soon as I turned on the computer I immediately got an error saying that Windows could not be installed. Tried restarting about 20 times, but the error keeps coming up. Sent it back immediately. Terrible."

    "The price point isn't exactly ideal to me and I dislike the fact all of this states 'NVIDIA GPU!' without ever saying which, until you go into the Q&A to have it answered by a user. So all my nitpicking aside, can you program on it? Easily. Can it game? It'll be a medium situation in my opinion. It's not going to game all too well, but you could throw things like Overwatch on it with ease."

    "This Acer Aspire is a nice combination for programming and gaming. It doesn't sacrifice specs or quality in its build and can be good for both tasks. While not the best bang for your buck or the slickest looking computer around, it gets the job done."

    "This machine gets a lot right, but enough wrong as to suggest keep looking for better alternatives. Acer "support" leves a lot to be desired, and their reliability is a bit suspect as well. The display isn't up to the rest of the machine. "
