      "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!"

      "The MacBook Pro is a great laptop for both beginners and experienced graphic designers. The SSD storage really helps with programs being snappy, and the screen is great. You might be able to get a similarly spec-ed Windows laptop for a cheaper price, but there are a lot of great tools that you can only get for OS X. The simplified interface makes it easy to focus on learning design."

      "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."

      "I have always had an interest in graphic design and did not know where to start with regard to pc vs. laptops. When I saw this laptop with built-in fingerprint sensor for enhanced security and one-touch log in I knew I had to have it and I love it! It is so easy to work with and the speakers are awesome! The screen is perfect and the viewing angles blow you away."

      "The ASUS Zenbook works well for me. Photoshop runs really fast with the combination of a current generation i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and the blazingly fast NVMe drive. After using this notebook, I don't think I'd even go back to a SATA SSD. The display is also great for graphic design."

      "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"

      "This laptop is good for learning graphic design for the price, but I would consider getting something more powerful if you plan on sticking with it. I find it works well for Photoshop, but it lags a bit when I'm working with multiple programs at once due to the RAM. I went with the SSD option, and I feel that I also don't have enough space without using an external drive."

      "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 find that the display is excellent and the specs are great. I know that it will transition with me as I grow into a more advanced designer."

However, out of the box it was too slow and crashed frequently when running multiple programs. This was a return for me, sad to say it."

      "Ideally for graphic design I'd prefer a faster graphics card and HDD. It has a 7th Gen processor which is good and has 16GB ram, again I'd rather have more but as a beginner notebook I suppose it would do. It has very good battery life, much longer than some other laptops with faster graphics or a bigger screen. Again, since it is for beginners... just keep in mind it will just be the first of many laptops you will eventually get and judge it accordingly."
