    "Very good computer for the price. Graphics card is good enough to play most games, not in 4k though. It'll be good enough for mostly any computer user aside from hardcore gamers."

    "I'm not sure the Lenovo is the best, but it's definitely not a bad one. You're looking at a very solid SDD, plenty of space and backed with a solid processor. All of which will be needed to properly get a virtual machine up and running."

    "Excellent laptop for the price. The graphics card isn't exactly top end, so it probably can't handle some of the most graphics-intensive new games, but the combination of the Sky lake processor and the 32GB of RAM (along with the 4 GB from the Nvidia GTX960M) can handle most graphics applications and one disadvantage is this laptop doesn't have a disc drive."

    "This zenbook is really something else. I use it for running virtual machines. You don't need to do that to enjoy it, though. It's got excellent memory, a lightning quick processor. Graphics card. Don't even get me started. The list just does not end. This is the end."

    "It's a pretty crummy laptop (look at the specs). It will probably run for virtual machine though. "
