    "This ain’t for Bill Gates is all I got to say. Man, this thing is fast. OK, it ain’t cheap either, but I got to say, if you got the bread, then eat it. This thing makes game-playing like real life. There’s no lag anywhere. I first used it on my friend’s system and there was no going back. I had to get me one. I did. Watch her rip!"

    "While the skylake I7 processors are pretty powerful I would not classify them as best, especially when compared to more recent models of coffeelake i7's. I attempted to build a newer machine rather recently and in my research I discovered that the skylake's performed 100 times worse than the coffeelakes and they are both of comparable costs. "
