    "Lenovo Legion Y520 80WK00FHUS is very lightweight and one of the fastest operating laptops I have ever used. Its processing speed would be great for someone who works in 3D programming. I love the illuminating lights under the keyboard. Works great for nights when everyone is in bed. I can still see the keys with the lights off. "

    "The screen does have some light bleed in lower edge of screen , but only on startup when screen is black. That is the only time I noticed. Not sure about visual quality vs other computers, but looks better than my desktop monitor at work, and my 4 year old laptop I'm replacing. If they cut corners here, I'm not really noticing that much since I'm not doing any photoshop or pro stuff where color has to be spot on."

    "3D programming can take a lot of power when you need to render models and do other power consuming tasks and the Gigabyte SabrePro 15 can supply all the power I need. This is especially helpful when i'm on the go or traveling for work. The laptop is small enough to carry around with me if I need to and extremely comfortable to use. I'm not sure if i'll buy another laptop that isn't Gigabyte after my phenomenal experience thus far."

    "I never though I would be so satisfied with a Microsoft Surface! It is way more powerful and effective than I was anticipating. The 4GB RAM is more than enough for the programs I run, and it is even snappy with 3D programming. Great balance between performance and portability."

    "This looks like a really nice piece of kit, as long as you aren't planning on being away from an outlet and table (17" isn't tiny . . .). This laptop has a ton of processing power for a decent price, and the raided disk drives are a good compromise between speed and storage for large projects with a ton of assets stored on the client machine. You might want to upgrade to windows 10 professional, but otherwise, this is a great machine."

    "I have been really impressed by this laptop since I have begun using it for 3D programming. #D programming requires a lot of power and I was surprised to see this laptop was able to handle it with no slow down or crashing. I have been creating a 3D model for a video game and I have been using the laptop to write the movement code for the model and I have not experienced any problems. The great battery life has allowed me to work into the night trying to finish the code and overall the laptop has proven its worth. If you need a laptop for 3D programming this laptop is for you."

    "The screen on my Aspire VN7 is HUGE! This colors on the display are vivid and not too saturated. The 16GB RAM allows me to load my software lightning fast with no lag or delay. I just wish that it didn't come with so much bloatware pre-installed that I had to get rid of."
