    "The ThinkPad line has a ton of decent models and this one works great for someone that needs a good work laptop that isn't too bulky. It still packs a ton of power, but doesn't require a big backpack to lug around. "

    "This laptop/tablet hybrid was perfect for this, and it functions well. You can even play PC games on it (on the lowest graphics setting and if you can stand playing with very low FPS). This is the perfect laptop for on the go people, it has great graphics and the videos are clear and the screen is stunning."

    "I would recommend something with a screen size of 17" or larger for a programmer but this computer has plenty of options, the windows 7 operating system is very outdated but some programmers may prefer this, for something portable I could see some may enjoy this solution but I feel larger screen size and a nice keyboard layout with windows 10 would be a better option."

    "Still only has Windows 8 on it and a 500gb hard drive will suffice. Price isn't too bad. Should be good enough for R programming."

    "As a stats major, I do a lot of R programming, and needed a new laptop. I have heard good things about Dell, so I decided on this one, due to it's features and price. It's OK but I would have preferred a faster processor and a backlit keyboard."

    "I use an ASUS K501UW-AB78 for gaming, but I think a gaming rigged laptop would be ideal for R programming. First of all, R is an interpreted language so the i7 Intel onboard this machine should keep things moving along at a brisk clip. R is also intended for statistical programming and boasts some fairly elaborate graphical techniques. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M GPU on this machine would make short work of R's graphics."

    "Wow, this is a really amazingly fast Laptop. 8 GB Ram with chrome OS is really taking it to the next level. I think Google is onto something with their laptop configurations. They know what size and speeds their R programming consumer prefers. The price point is similar as some Apple products. I would venture that we will start to see these all over, very soon."

    "This laptop is fast enough to run code for programming and has a good battery life of 6 to 7 hours. If you dim the brightness on the display enough you could probably stretch it to 8 or 9 hours. It feels like a premium item and works like one too."
