    "I’ve been a loyal user of iPad tablets for years, but the Apple iPad Pro was the first tablet i’ve Ever bought specifically for coding. I am still new to the coding world, having signed up for a coding course offered by my employer almost on a whim, and I bought this tablet almost on a whim because my instructor recommended it. The iPad Pro runs all of the coding apps and tools for the course with the smooth performance and reliability I’ve come to expect from Apple’s tablets, and it’s been a big help for learning how to code. I’ve never used another tablet for coding, but I do notice that, generally, the students with iPad Pros and similar tablets in the course seem to have the easiest time with their hardware relative to their peers. I have limited basis for comparison, but the 32GB version was perfectly sufficient for all of the tools and apps I use for coding, without breaking my budget. This seems like a great tool for coders, and I definitely recommend it!"

    "The Samsung 7 Spin is a 2 in 1 tablet that is a great choice for an aspiring coder. Because it has a keyboard, it is incredibly useful, as you can use programs to learn coding, and then switch into a laptop view and practice yourself!"

    "I love this notebook. I had no idea when I went shopping that Samsung even made these. I love it! The only complaint is the fan can get a little loud sometimes, but it doesn't bother me too much. I use this indoors and outdoors. For work and for play, it gets the job done. "

    "Tried and True Laptop, if you want a daily worker of a laptop well the Microsoft Surface Book is the one you want, it's part laptop and part tablet but easily accessible for both. It's great for daily work whether it be coding or if you use it just to play games or surf the web. It's 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD make it easy to store and run anything you could think of. The screen is larger than most laptops so pick up this great hybrid."

    "The versatility of this tablet / laptop combo is great for presentations, and the weight and size of it makes it a good traveling companion.

    "This laptop works great for the first few months and then you will slowly start to lose functions one at a time. The touchscreen was the first function to go and then the keyboard died shortly after. This product was not built to last. "
