    "It's my fault but I assumed it supported dual monitors but the two HDMI ports are not for dual monitors--one is HDMI in and the other is out. However, you can get a USB to HDMI converter and enjoy two monitors flawlessly. It was surprisingly choppy when it comes to performance. I added 8gbs of mem and swapped out for an SSD drive. This is by far the easiest computer I've ever worked on. So upgrading the drive and memory was really simple. It's now fantastic and I couldn't be happoer."

    "This is a top of the line processor. The graphics card is more than capable of doing everything you could possibly want it to. The memory and the tetrabyte hard drive store everything you'd need for even a major game so programming is a breeze. I'm not usually a big fan of Acer, because their customer support is less than good, but so far no issues with this one."

    "This model is sold as a gaming computer, but I'm here to say that it's great for programming too. All the features that make it suitable for gaming are actually quite helpful for a programmer. The nice large drive, the cpu and RAM that are good for gaming, these are helpful for the multitasking you want to do."
