"Rest assured, you get what you pay for..."4.5 starson by robstak
Pros: Unadulterated gadget porn. The screen can only truly be appreciated after seeing it. Sturdy. Blazing fast. Whisper quiet. HDMI out.
Cons: Obviously, the price. It is rather hefty.
Summary: This is the *it* gadget for a reason. I had to wait 4 wks for mine to ship and this is my first mac. I. AM. BLOWN. AWAY. Just go to an Apple store and play with one and you'll see what I'm saying.
Couple of things: there is no way this computer gets 1 star reviews. I've read them and they are either trolls or don't understand what they are talking about. I'm no mac fanboi, I just hate trolls.
Other things of note that don't really effect me:
- no ethernet (dongle)
- 2 thunderbolt + hdmi means you can run FOUR displays if you wanted to.
- Battery life is good, but at full brightness and regular use I get about 5 hours on a charge. imo 10 would be nice!
- There's no Kensington Lock hole. so beware at coffee houses!
- You get free upgrade to OSX mountain lion.
It's not cheap, but it's the best out there. Don't listen to the haters.
