    "I tried various laptops to develop games on and this was not really that good. It was an average laptop. It works OK, but it is not the best by a long shot."

    "I don't think a MacBook would be wise for game development. Not only are they pricey, you'd be better off with a PC. You can sure create standout video and images with a MacBook however."

    "Got this new in the box and other than one brief period between updates when the screen would not respond I have had no problems with this machine. It is blazing fast and the sound quality is really good. I have it paired with a Brydge 12.3 keyboard and would highly recommend that you get this keyboard with the machine. There was a one day delay in between getting the machine and getting the keyboard. While the Surface played clips beautifully, the kickstand made it almost impossible to use in bed and the keyboard kept reverting to the writing interpreter, which was slightly irritating. Once I got the keyboard though, the true experience came to life. The Surface Pro 4 is blazing fast (I got the i7e with 8GB RAM) and has had no loading or freezing issues. The screen is amazingly beautiful and crisp. I have yet to put it through all it's paces and may revisit this review in the future. UPDATE: I have now had this machine for nearly 3 months and have had zero issues with it. It is still as blazing fast today as it was the day I got it. Updates are a breeze and the machine continues to perform to my expectations"
