    "This HP ENVY packs quite a punch for the price. I was amazed at how fast this laptop is, most likely due to the solid-state drive. The power behind this ultrabook has made coding a breeze for me."

    "The HP Notebook 15-ay011nr is just okay as a day to day laptop. It is not anywhere near a high-end computer that it advertises itself to be. Coding is not a simple process on a standard computer, and this HP Notebook 15-ay011nr is essentially a standard computer. The keyboard doesn't have a great feel or pop to it, and it is not ideal. I would not recommend any serious coder to buy this laptop."

    "The Pixel Book is such a weird piece of technology. It runs Chrome OS, and there are plenty of development tools available on the system, but none of them really integrate well with the software that most other people use. It's a cool concept but it's more or less useless in a professional field. Probably too expensive too."

    "This is a very high powered computer. It has an I7 processor and 16gb of Ram. It is quite high priced at around $1325.00. I can only assume that it would most surely work well for any type of coding job that one could do. It even has a surface pen to make the job even easier for the user. It could be used as a laptop or a tablet. It is quite functional for the coder. "

    "Oh the joys of being an early adopter! This computer is indeed revolutionary and is thin as all can be... but with some drawbacks. The keyboard might be the biggest hurdle for coders. It's a love-or-hate kind of thing, but besides that it can be prone to failure. The portability is excellent though and the screen is gorgeous. It's a true Catch-22."

    "This is the perfect notebook for coding. the specs are what you would expect from an Apple laptop. It's hard to be disappointed. I can run all the stacks and environments that I need to when working, and the operating system is very intuitive while being UNIX-like along with the ability to dual-boot and virtualize other OSes. I love coding on this."

    "While the Macbook Air has nowhere near the best screen around I still use mine everyday at work. It's portable and straight to the point, it does exactly what I need it to do and doesn't require me anything more to do. Plus the keyboard works shockingly well considering the short travel. "
