I am not a power user of these forums, but I do come here when I am considering purchases. I figured I owed a heartfelt post: I've had a 13" Ultimate for about a month now, and it is the best computer I've ever owned. The screen was weird for the first week, but then changed. I remembered that it might be the glue drying. It had a yellow tint but is now gone and looks just as good as my 2010 15" MBP. The battery life is astounding, especially if I keep the screen brightness low. It rarely gets hot, and the fan has turned on maybe twice the whole time I've owned it. And I keep Parallels running Win7 running in the background. I carry it to the coffee shop like it's a notebook. It's a delight. Best purchase I've ever made computer-wise.
