"LOVE IT! Does everything I need."4.5 starson by goshkruse
Pros: Track pad, glossy screen, light weight and stylish. Compatibility with iPhone.
Cons: Price. Price. Price.
Summary: This purchase was a move back to Mac after seven years being PC only. I decided to go with a Mac since this was primarily to be for home use. So far after a week, I love it. Surprisingly, the "cons" from several other reviewers are the "pros" for me. I especially love the track pad. It's great. Simple finger gestures make using the track pad so much easier, so much that I've returned the bluetooth trackball I purchased with the laptop. Using the pad as a button is indeed annoying, but this is easily remedied by setting it to tap. My advice is to give it some time, after a day or so, you'll be addicted. As for the glossy screen, it looks great. Since this is mostly for home entertainment, movies and photos look great. I haven't tried viewing the glossy screen outside, so I can't comment, but I doubt this will be a problem. It is a pricey notebook, and at this price, a little more memory, hard-drive space and speed would have been nice. Nevertheless, it seems to be capable of doing everything I need.
