    "This laptop have great display, awesome keyboard and especially designed for gaming purposes. Being able to adjust the keyboard lighting and brightness, as well as the computer itself right from a UI console is great. The RGB keyboard is gorgeous and I like the custom color combinations you can create with it. It looks great especially in the dark."

    "Pretty good computer, but I wouldn't recommend it for programming. While it's low cost, for the same price you can get a much quicker PC without the GPU this one has. Obviously designed for gaming, so just money put into something you wouldn't need."

    "I bought this laptop for myself because I needed something that could keep up with my work pace and my gaming hobby. I've been running Adobe programs on this for some time and there is literally no lag when running multiple programs in the background. It's really functional and the screen is the perfect size. I would say that this laptop is on the higher end of the spectrum as it can run a lot of programs and tasks without any real problems."

    "One thing I liked was that it did not allow me to enter letters for a pin. I purchased an HP earlier and it did allow letters in the pin at set up but once the computer was turned off; the letters on the keyboard were locked out and I couldn't enter the pin to get back on my computer. This computer stopped me from doing that and required numbers only. Saved me a lot of anguish. So far it works great and does everything I expected and more than I know how to use."

    "I am not sure this computer is a good solution to the topic. It is a Microsoft computer, and does not run Linux. You would have to install Linux. This computer does have a good processor, yet it doesn't have the best Ram, only 4gb. It does have good reviews, at 4.1 stars and over 300 reviews. I just don't feel this computer is a good Linux laptop for programming. "
