    "This one is okay as far as the internals go. I worry more about it's durability. I'm afraid the hinges are weak and won't last as long as I would want them to."

    "This is an okay laptop. but it is lacking in alot of places. it says its for gaming but has trouble running even the simplest games. Needs a better graphics card for starters. if your using it to brows facebook or something its okay but anything more than that and you cant use it"

    "Eh. Way too expensive for the potential headaches that may arise. Great specs, but if anything goes wrong and i have to endure horrible customer support (or none at all) it just isn't worth it. There are many better options available, especially at this price point. I'll definitely keep looking."

    "Hampered by small storage and a small screen this powerful laptop has all the power you need for the latest games. With increasing storage demands of todays hottest titles I think 256gb or even 500gb is to little storage and paired with the relatively small screen makes this not my go to everyday gaming machine."

    "It's tricky to find something VR ready these days. This laptop definitely more than suits that. If you are ONLY concerned about running everything well, this is all you need. I think my only gripe is the price tag is very high. It's almost unaffordable for someone like me. I'd say maybe look into an acer if you're looking for a good mix of quality and affordability."

    "Keyboard color options (blue/rainbow) is a great feature, in addition to the bulkiness of the laptop, which can enhance the durability. However, bulk isn't desired for on-the-go purposes, so keep that in mind when viewing this product. Overall, seems suitable for gaming with minimal lag and a generous warranty period."

    "The ASUS VivoBook V400CA-DB31T is ill-suited for gaming due to its meager RAM and hard drive capacity. I suspect even my Dungeons and Dragons forum posts began to be a burden for this machine as the number of GIFs I downloaded started to slow the performance of the laptop in a short time of ownership.
