    "This laptop surely does its deal not only as gaming, but for virtualization. I was a heavy gamer before being recruited for a virtualization project. I use this laptop for both purposes and so far, I only encounter very minimal roadblocks which easily gets resolved."

    "It's so convenient having a gaming laptop to use for virtualization. I'm actually using my Dell Inspi for our school project involving virt to replicate a program we designed for Linux."

    "I had issues with my old computer simply not being powerful enough to run emulation of some things I need. Since getting this I can run anything I want with no issues. It's still new so maybe over time it will slow but for now it does everything I need."

    "Acer is like an underdog when it comes to computers. They make some nice machines. I prefer them to a Lenovo that pings info back to China. This is actually an issue, and the DOD won't allow Lenovo computers because of it. Acer is a budget alternative."

    "This laptop is meant for straight gaming because of the advanced GPUs and CPUs. Most likely can be used for virtual machines but it's not specifically meant for it and there are better laptops for this on the market!"

    "This would likely not be a good virtual machine laptop. I say that due to standard portable class CPU. When it comes to virtual machines, you need RAM, and raw CPU power. This device has the ram, it has the SSD storage speed, but when it comes to the baseline i5 within, it would struggle."

    "This Samsung Notebook is the lightest laptop you will ever hold. It's is amazing, it weighs almost nothing. It is no slouch when it comes to power either. A i7 CPU along with 8 gigs of ram make this a powerful product as well. This is a great laptop for school work, or really anything you need to do with it. Plus, it is nothing to put this in your book bag and pack it around since it weighs almost nothing."
