    "I've been an avid follower of the apple macbook line for years, and the macbook air has not disappointed. I'm a programmer, and it's light and slim enough to be portable, meaning I'm no longer tied to doing my job in my dark basement office. My only complaint is it's a little flimsy."

    "I was debating between this and the ASUS Zenbook Deluxe 3. The ASUS has better spec's, , except for the display resolution. But Mac does have a better reputation of lasting longer. Hopefully paying for premium saves me some headaches in the long run."

    "I love this laptop. For everyone complaining that it doesn't match the specs, look at the price. It is so far beyond quality it's not even funny. This is a steal. Apple would never put out a bad product no matter where the origin is from, I'm seriously going to stock up on these. You can learn to program and code and anything else you'd want from a MAC. I can't believe how cool the touch bar is."

    "As a loyal Apple customer but relative newcomer to the world of programming (this is only my third course on the subject), I knew I wanted a Mac laptop to use for developing my codeslinging skills. I eventually settled on the Apple MacBook MLHA2LL/A, a prime specimen of Apple's laptop offerings. The Apple MacBook MLHA2LL/A is a great example of the speed, efficiency and reliability that helped make Apple such a big player in the laptop sector. It's also delightfully lightweight and portable -- important traits given my fondness for working outside. It's a little on the pricey side if you're not used to Macbooks, though, so I while I would strongly recommend this Yosemite-equipped, delightfully user-friendly machine to others, I realize that it may not be for everyone."
