    "The Lenovo Edge E470 is definitely a competent machine for game programming. The solid state drive and dual core processor would be sufficient if you are simply writing code in unity or something. But, If you got into rendering or testing your code these specs could certainly cause problems. There are other Thinkpads on the market that would perform better than this one in the arena of game programming."

    "Having gone through multiple laptops in the past few years because I was unsatisfied with their performance or I faced multiple technical issues I couldn't resolved, I decided to give the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E570 a try. I've never had a Lenovo before so I didn't really know what to expect. I've had a few Acer's and obviously Dell's and Toshiba's but I haven't tried the brand Lenovo. I always hear about them from my friends and from what I gathered I figured they were a pretty economical brand. I wanted a gaming laptop that would have a beefy video card. The Lenovo E570 I picked up seem really solid to me. I got the specs I wanted and after using it for several weeks I've had no complaints. I haven't had it for too long but as of now I have to say I'm pretty impressed by Lenovo and I'm hoping the E570 will finally satisfy me and keep whatever hairs I have left from coming out from my pulling them out from anger and rage from hardware issues. The NVidia GeForce GTX 950M has held up to my games and I'm running them at very high frame rates without any lagging. It's smooth like butter and I'm a happy camper right now, although I don't camp in games. That's strictly frown upon in my world."

    "Lenovo ThinkPads are nice for game programming as they are really portable. I have wanted to get one for a while but have not been able to find one at a price point that I like. I decided to check out a Google Pixel Book GA00123-US as it was relatively similar in use though at a better price. I have really enjoyed this product a lot."

    "When it comes to game programming this is most likely not going to be the computer you want to work on especially if you are using resource heavy programs. The processing speed on this laptop just isn't enough to hand any real programs. However if you are programing webpage games or something light then this will do the job."

    "I had received Lenovo Thinkpad as a birthday gift from my partner. I type a lot and do this for living. Thus, i needed a product that is highly portable that has its keyboard built with very convenient materials for the ease of use for writers. The processing power and the RAM capacity is more than enough for the type of job that i need this product for. In-built storage capacity is very large for storing conventional files. The screen resolution is very satisfying with accurate depiction of imagery."
