    "It plays very nicely with everything I've plugged into it (including my iPod) but it did have a problem with a 3 year old dual layer DVD-RW external drive. It only recognized it as a USB 1.0 device, so it was kinda slow. "

    "This is another solution that isn't the best fit. Dell does not make very good computers. They all tend to run really slow."

    "This laptop is very good for what it does and what it's made for and that is every day computing. If looking for programming work computers, this may not be the best out there but it is at a good price point and could do the job."

    "Seen better notebooks. This is a bit hit and miss. Slow loading and sometimes overheats. Not for a gamer that's for sure. Ok to use for programming small things and maybe some drafting. It's just a plain notebook is all it is. Nothing really special about it."

    "For those looking for a decent programming notebook, this could be worthwhile, it has a solid processor and the anti glare screen are quite nice. The bad is the hard drive is not very big, depending on the type of work you'll be doing, you may need to upgrade in this area. Overall for the price, I would recommend that you keep looking, especially since this is likely a machine that will require upgrading, which will cause the price to move towards the $1000, not the best value.

    "I'm a big fan of how large this screen is. If you're going to program on a laptop, that is the second most important feature. The large storage space and fast processor make this pretty ideal. I've been happy with it!"

    "This laptop has really helped me improve my programming. I have been using it the last week as I have attempted to learn the Visual Basic language. The laptop compiles my programs quickly and shows the errors quickly. It even offers tool for me to fix my program and offers suggestions. This has allowed me on several occasions to fix programs I would have never solved on my own. I would recommend this to programmers because of its speed and helpful tools."

    "The touchscreen on my ASUS Zenbook stopped working after 60 days or so and ASUS wanted $300 just to look at it with no guarantee of repair. Before then, the screen jumped around at the slightest touch, almost rendering it useless as a tablet."
