    "This laptop is really amazing and I love gaming with it. Imagine having a 15.6 inch screen in full HD along with 512 GB of storage. Not only can I add memory for more storage, I can also store it easily due to the thinness of the design. "

    "This is an excellent computer. It is an apple so some of the programming apps might be limited. I have always preferred Dell computers. However, I do live my apple products (ipad and iphone). "

    "This is a powerhouse in a small package. This computer is small, I mean it is super light weight, and super thin. Easy to take anywhere with you. Don't let it's size fool you as this computer will keep up with laptops much larger when it comes to raw power. I use the laptop to write code and programs with and it has not problems at all. 5 out of 5 stars."

    "This is a great laptop for programming and has more than enough capability to handle most programming needs. The powerful i5 processor and 8gb of memory will be able to handle most of the workload, and if that is the only requirement this is an excellent laptop for the task. It's price is even very economic, and it has other features that make it a likeable laptop including screen size, hard drive size, and screen resolution."

    "It's fast, but it doesn't have quite the processing power I was hoping for (partially because it's a small thin laptop). It's not bad, but I feel like there are probably a lot better options out there."

    "I needed a mobile solution for my recent work in IT. I had several different programs that use huge amounts of processing power and other resources. The VivoBook has been quite capable of handling everything I've thrown at it, including often running several resource intense programs simultaneously. Only real gripe is battery life, but fortunately, I'm able to keep it plugged in at most of my places of work."
