"Unbeatable Combo of Speed & Battery life"5.0 starson by jjessie
Pros: Ignore any negative reviews you see, go to the Apple Store and get your hands on one! You will be AMAZED how FAST this machine is with what SEEMS like such a slow / old processor. The secret is the ONBOARD SSD!! That's right, onboard!
Cons: Not many I could think of other than it might be nice to have a backlit keyboard. Although since I switched from a mbp with the backlight to a regular macbook without it I really haven't missed it much.
Summary: The SSD implementation alone makes this laptop at the very least something you MUST strongly CONSIDER! Every other system that can have SSD on the market currently have been designed to take BOTH types of drives. In order to build the system to accept either type of drives you must use a SATA interface and an adapter for the SSD itself.
Apple took their knowledge of flash (SSD) technology from the iPhone and the iPad and applied it directly to a laptop. This laptop was designed from the ground up with flash memory (SSD) in mind. This makes an enormous difference that the other reviews I have seen don't seem to mention.
Your doing yourself a major disservice if you do not check out this amazing next generation laptop. All laptops will be designed this way someday, but why wait when you can have it now?
