    "This is a really great laptop for business professionals and people who want a thin working computer. I got this right out of college and have been using it at my finance job, I really like you because the quick strip makes it easier to pull up the programs I need instantly as I'm usually juggling between spreadsheets and graphic designs. This laptop is definitely one of the better ones from Apple."

    "I bought my MacBook Pro earlier this year and don't know why I waited so long. I thought that I was going to be losing something by leaving Windows, but boy was I wrong. My MacBook has increased my productivity 10x. Honestly, for the money I spent, I have made twice as much back because of how much more efficient this laptop is over my old Windows laptop. The best money I have ever spent."

    "For an Ultrabook, this is a decent choice. Personally, I prefer a Windows machine, but sometimes a developer needs a Mac. This is on the smallish side, and I find it a bit hard to type on. If you are full time on iOS, this can get tedious, but if you need a portable Mac at a fairly decent price this will work."

    "Needed a reliable laptop for some software coding and web design and this makes everything a breeze! Seriously, try doing labor-intensive work on a windows machine and then on a Macbook Pro and you'll see the difference! The software is seamless, it's super snappy and things like the touch bar make switching between tasks easy. The only thing is the HD is just 256GB so you might run out of space quick and this costs $2400, but Apple definitely gives you a product that will last and help you enjoy your work!"

    "This surface pro is good for when you want to do small things like document work. It is not the best out there but for the price, it's got some bang for your buck. There are some bugs like any small laptop replacement but if you can get passed that this little machine is worth your time. "

    "I used to work with a development firm in Chicago and they always used Microsoft Surface Book HNL-00001 (13.5") Ultrabooks. I always wondered why and one day I asked and was told from the Manager that it's the only thing they use in the offices because they are easy to learn for almost anyone that works for them and they are light and easy to carry.

    "I was looking for an Ultrabook to use at the office. Someone suggested this desktop as an alternative. The desktop is okay for the price and has acceptable speed. But it is not an Ultrabook. I miss the portability and wish I had got the Ultrabook instead."

    "Out of all of the Ultrabooks that I have come across at my office the best I have used is probably the Microsoft Surface Pro FJR-00001. I really found this Ultrabook to be surprisingly powerful, light and just what I wanted in a product that I take between the house and the office."
