    "I recently dropped my Apple laptop and realized the cost to fix it was not worth it. Especially since I always experienced server delays which was surprising. Since purchasing the Dell Latitude, I have been very pleased with its processor speed. I've been able to download images fast and play some of my favorite games without lag. Worth the money."

    "Asus is a so-so brand, I mean there laptops are prone to have breakdowns, but this is a solid gaming laptop that should last you for the next few years. This is a thousand dollar laptop, very expensive, this company takes advantage of overpricing gaming pc's. This is the Ferrari of laptops, the ssd memory makes sure you always get up and running quickly. Yes, this laptop will get your GTA 5 running glitch free in no time."

    "I do a lot of coding so I needed to find a better laptop than the one I had. After doing a bunch of searches I figured Acer would be the right choice. The Aspire E 15 is amazing. It is really powerful and will run almost anything. For the price, this is the right laptop. It is amazing. "

    "I'm in school for computer science and do a lot of programming, and overall I have found this laptop to be a good value for the money. That said, I think this computer is great for anyone because it is easy to use and easy to upgrade, so if you are a student who has to store a lot of data for some kind of project, it will be easy to upgrade the memory in this computer, and if you find that it is sluggish, upgrading the ram is a breeze as well even for non-nerds. I got mine for $350 and it is hard to beat that deal for what you get in computing power and use. Definitely great for students and hobbyist programmers alike!"

    "My mom is a fan of HP and asked me to recommend a laptop. She was used to big screens, but wanted one she could travel with. I found this one. She decided that while this fit what she'd asked for it was too small. She handed it over to me. I have used it for programming and find it works really well. It is faster than the HP I had before. I am glad my mom decided she wanted something else."

    "A super nice laptop if you are a Windows user. It is so thin! And it also has plenty of ports on the IO. The fact that it has a touch screen is a great bonus as well. I find it to be very responsive, like a smart phone would be. Can’t go wrong with this one."

    "I'm not happy with the screen resolution at all, it's quite grainy. The fan is pretty loud and annoying as well. I don't recommend this laptop."

    "A lot of people have chuckled lately when I've gotten this computer out to bang out some code, but once they've seen what it does, the scoffing goes away. It's a ruggedized machine which means it's not going to get banged up in the field. The description says it runs Windows 10 but it's actually ChromeOS -- and that's fine with me."

    "This laptop is very powerful for anything from web-surfing, to programming, and even gaming. The i7 processor coupled with 16gb of ram and a 1060 graphics card is more than enough for programming. While very powerful, and great to have all of this capability, it means that the laptop is more expensive. If you are just looking for a laptop for programming there are cheaper options out there. "

    "I use this laptop in my work as a freelance program, and overall I am really happy with it. It is fast, high quality, and stylish. The picture is great and the touch screen is highly responsive. The one drawback is that the laptop is a bit hard to open. It requires two hands. I guess at least my toddler can't open it."
