    "I'm a beginning graphic designer and taking classes at a local community college. I needed a laptop that allows me to work on graphic design projects and is powerful enough for Photoshop and Illustrator. I bought a MacBook Pro 15 and I love it! It's fast, powerful, and beautiful. It does everything I need for my graphic design projects. I really recommend it, even though it's super expensive. It's well worth it if you need the power of a MacBook for your studies or work. Love it!"

    "It's a bit pricey, but if you are looking for a good solution to your graphic design work station then the Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe is for you. It's super thin design and light weight make it easy to carry and I have no trouble at all taking it from place to place with me. Sure the display is a little bit smaller then I would like, but this thing packs a punch thanks to it's new generation i7. I don't experience any slowdowns when doing my graphic editing work and it's super quiet even at full load."

    "This computer is very cutting edge. Any computer with a 7th Gen Core processor is definitely high speed, which will make downloading ,streaming your videos and music a big plus. Any and all built in security is a plus for all computer users even if you only spend an hours daily on the internet. For gamers and techno suave people its a wonderful buy. The computer that can stand on its own is everyones dream especially for watching movies and videos"

    "For those graphic designers on the go that need a light but powerful laptop to work on and display their work, look no further than the Dell XPS 15. It has a dazzling 15 inch Ultra HD display with Touch. A very versatile and capable laptop for graphic professionals."

    "When I was looking for a laptop solution for my graphic design work I was hard pressed to find a cheap work station that would do the job. After a while I started looking at gaming laptops as a possibility and the Asus ROG Zephyrus GX501 caught my eye. It has a strong enough graphics card in the 8GB 1070 to do the job of graphic editing and it has a workhorse i7 and SSD to make rending designs a breeze. The best part? You can use it to game to when your done with work so you truly get more bang for you buck here."

    "I think the Lenovo Yoga 910 would suit your needs. I'm an intermediate graphic designer and I think that this is the perfect laptop for a range of talent. It'll definitely be perfect for a beginner, but still powerful enough to get you where you need to be once you've started learning the ropes. Easily the best decision I've made in a while; check it out!"

    "I've been looking for a good upgrade laptop for me to do video editing on the fly or on location and this one fit the bill. Fast, powerful, with a large screen it barely notices even the most demanding video editing I throw at it."
