    "One of the best laptops you can get for the price. This laptop has it all and is working out very well for me. I ordered the add on graphics device from Dell but since this came with an integrated Nvidia 1070GTX there was no need because the extra device doesn't support any better video cards. They just don't fit inside the case. So if you purchase this with the 1070 card don't waste your money on the graphics dock. Other then that I am very pleased with this purchase I do recommend you make sure that you have a cooling device or pad to set it on because it does get extremely hot especially when running a VR device. So far I have tested it with the Oculus VR system and am very happy with the performance! "

    "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."

    "This is a decent all in one for on the go, It's a little underpowered for development standpoint, maybe for coding, but definitely not for compiling."

    "I think the MSI GS63VR Stealth Pro-002 is a good (albeit expensive) laptop for developers. However, I was told to find "upcoming laptops," and this one is already available, so I guess that means I can't put this one on my list. "

    "As a developer, I need a laptop that is going to help me work. With the MacBook Pro MPXT2LL/A, I found that the lack of native windows support outside of using Book Camp was a major detriment to my work as a developer. In order for me to do much of my work as a developer, I need to be on the windows platform natively as opposed to using windows through boot camp. "

    "I used an Acer Aspire E and I was really disappointed. The entire package was just kind of sloppy, from the very loose and flexing screen, mushy keyboard deck, awful feeling keyboard, and lackluster monitor. Unless you absolutely need a budget laptop, I'd steer clear of this."
