    "The Dell Inspiron 15 3000 is a notebook computer that gets the job done. This is not a notebook for gaming or heavy graphics work, but you can complete tasks like programming or web development. This notebook comes installed with 16GB of DDR4 RAM and a 256 SSD which gives the user a fast response time when using different applications. A decent laptop for basic use."

    "In this category, there are literally hundreds of machines that fit the description. Some just barely, and some at the high end. I would fit this Asus model as higher than average but it does have an updated brother that though will cost more, one might want to take a look at as well. I like the brand, this configuration will work for almost anyone and I give it high marks with a little off the top due to it being one model older than the current crop."

    "When you're a developer you're often on the go, making your way to meetings and other connection building events. With the ASUS VivoBook M580VD I don't have to stop my work when i'm on a flight or the bus. The laptop has plenty of power to get the job done and even a little extra to game when i'm finished with my work. I would recommend this to any developer out there wanting to get the most out of their laptop."
