    "The Dell Latitude E7470 is a solid laptop computer for many uses. It is lightweight and fast, with a high speed processor. I don't like that the headphone jack is on the right side. It is suitable for work and videos, and some light gaming and software development."

    "I don't think this is the best solution. This laptop is very low end. It doesn't have very much memory nor does it have a decent graphics card. Both of those would be required for game development. "

    "This is a relatively powerful little computer that's also lightweight and easy to use. It's not the most stylish looking laptop, and I have serious concerns about some of the methods used in its construction; for instance I don't believe a laptop should ever rattle when you pick it up like this one does, but you really just can't beat the price."

    "A good lower end laptop that still does a pretty good job for gaming. It's not top of the line by any means but you also aren't getting a piece of junk. It's good enough for the casual gamer and still does all the things you need to do with Windows 10 for real world tasks like email, etc. "

    "The ASUS P2540UA-AB51 is not a gaming laptop, so I wouldn't put it out there as the best one for software and game developers. It does however run basic games fine. If you're not playing games with super intensive programs or graphics, then this is a great computer at a reasonable price."
