    "This is not a great laptop for computer science students. The screen is too small. When such detail is needed for coding and reading intricate details, I don't think 13.3 inches is appropriate."

    "Very light weight and super fast ultra book I have used so far. It is powerful enough to play games or do software development as well. The keyboard is very smooth to type. The mouse pad area is also very convenient to use unlike some other ultra books. Battery holds complete charge even after long use."
