    Asus Zen AiO Pro
    The all-in-one desktop for people who want a Windows computer over an Apple, but still like the way the iMac looks. Perfect for those whose professional lives require computing power, powerful graphics and storage for all the multimedia files/programs that go along with that.

    "This is a fair solution to the topic. While developers could use this PC this is probably not the first one they would chose. There are so low scoring reviews about this computer and the way that it works. While it can work it is certainly not the best solution. "

    "HP 34-b010 is one of the best PCs for developers, but it definitely comes with a high price. If you can afford it, I highly recommend it. It's an ultra-thin, curved All-in-One with immersive sound and stunning graphics. It has a great processor as well. It has been designed to run at faster speeds and does so well."

    "I tend to associate anything that has the words "best" and "for developers" in its title as something likely treading on dangerous ground. Developers are a special breed of well, people. And where the backslash key is located relative to the enter key can make or break that developer's decision on whether a particular machine is 'great' or 'trash'. Just kidding, but not by much. And yes, this Acer model has practically everything one could ask for in today's ultra fast, ultra needy developer's dream. Yes, these machines are a little pricey, but at 2 am when you're trying to get the last bit of code written for tomorrow's show and tell, do you want to skimp on price or get the job done ? You can read the specs, but good marks all around."

    "For what this laptop is, if it was offered with a better chassis something for pleasing to the eyes. It would give other high end computers a run for the money. Latest and greatest i7-8550U, 8GB of Ram, 256gb ssd and a 1080P display. A MX150 is also supplied which is believed to be equal enough power of last generations 960 and it includes 2GB of dedicated memory. All around a great laptop with an ugly chassis."

    "I thought that this Dell model would be sufficient for my needs as a web developer. However, I think I needed a laptop with faster processing speed to really be on top of things. Next time I buy I'll look for a more expensive and more powerful rig for my web development needs. "

    "I have been running my Alienware AW17R4 for a while now, and while it was primarily bought as a gaming rig for on the go use, it has slowly taken place of my other devices that I use for Dev work. This laptop far surpasses the desktop in my office, and is a fairly even match for my desktops at home!"

    "Love this for gaming! Most PC's simply can't run the games of today, but this bad boy does it all without even getting warm. Crystal clear graphics so good I can almost imagine I'm actually inside of the game. "
