Ya' know. It suddenly occurs to me that maybe Keith's changed his mind.
Told them to send it back and now he's holding out for a new Microsoft Surface Tablet.

It is indeed here
It looks good on the web but better in person. Much thinner/lighter than the 15 but with all the pro features and power of the pro.
It's very very fast which almost goes without saying but even when i taxed it, it was either silent or next to silent.
I'd seen a lot of stuff on the web saying that web pages scrolling was choppy and normal non-retina graphics were fuzzy because they had to be scaled up. I wasn't worried, I know Apple brings out new stuff and it takes a while for 3rd parties to catch up but having played with it, there's no issue that I can find at all.
The SSD storage is blindingly stupidly fast! and 16GB memory which is amazing for a laptop.
Of course, the highlight is the screen. Very hard to explain how good it is. I looked at photos and they really popped off the screen, the icons and text look incredible. When you play with it, it really feels like a new generation and a game changer, but then after some hours your eyes get used to it. I went back to the old generation 15" pro and I thought something was wrong with it! There isnt, but after looking at the new one for hours, non-retina now looks pixelly. Amazing how apple manage to do that :/
So faster, lighter, quieter, miles better screen. Love it
ps. I see all the previous models being reduce in pc world, apple etc. There's such a premium on the new ones right now that the old ones, discounted, are bargains! I really wanted a 15" screen but if you're fine with 13.3", then the macbook airs are still the lightest/thinnest ones around
We're knocking off quite a bit already in work- up to £500 on some models!ps.

The high-spec ones are were the best bargains are, but even the 13.3" one for £849 is a GREAT bargain to have as it's a bloody fantastic laptop in its own right.Originally Posted by Keith, post: 283138
I've still not upgraded my white macbook yet. I just can't seem to kill it!
Well thats the other good thing about apple stuff, it does last ages and other than "I want" there seems little reason to upgrade them for yearsOriginally Posted by josh.p., post: 283140
