For all of the negativity the new 2015 15" MBP gets on here, I've gotta say I'm thoroughly impressed. I've been using this new machine for 2 weeks now, and it absolutely flies. I upgraded from a 2010 so the leap is significant. I edit video for a living (and occasional vector work), and this is quite honestly one of the most capable machines I've ever used. A couple thoughts: + The dGPU (AMD R9 370x) is impressive. I can run my games smoothly on medium to high at 40-60fps (Cities Skylines, Counter Strike: GO). Video editing is faster than my desktop. With 16GB of RAM, After Effects is snappy, and Final Cut Pro X feels incredible (thanks OpenCL). When the dGPU is active, the OS X Yosemite UI is buttery smooth with it. Mission Control, Spaces, etc are beautiful, even with 6-8 fullscreen apps. + The sound is amazing, and far better than my 2010. I've actually been impressed with how powerful the sound is. I use my computer as a stereo around the house now. I also checked out Boom 2, a neat system-wide equalizer (they have a free trial too) and was impressed with that. + This screen. Such beauty. Much wow. And no retention issues whatsoever. "Impressive" sums it up for me. I changed my scaling to the 1680x1050 option and have a nice combo of workspace and near-retina DPI. It's a great combo if you like to see more on the screen + Force Touch trackpad is excellent, it was a bit different from traditional, but I was using both my 2010 and this 2015 side-by-side to transfer files, and by the end of the day I strongly preferred the Force Touch. It just feels faster and more refined. You can also change the setting to 'firm' to make it feel more like the traditional trackpad. + Unfortunately, you cannot boot camp install Windows 7, and I refuse to install what Microsoft calls "Windows 8" -- I'm planning on waiting until Windows 10 is released before doing that. Hoping that is supported. Tips: + If you bought the dGPU model (I highly recommend it, it's a significant difference between the Iris Pro and the 370x), grab gfxCardStatus to allow you to manually activate the dGPU. + I was drinking water at my desk and spilled it onto my keyboard (yeah, that happened in first two weeks) and cleaned it up faster than I could say "****". Turned out to be fine, but if you're clumsy like me, I recommend getting a keyboard cover and a case to store this thing in. It's too beautiful, don't be like me and almost ruin it with a cup of water. Overall I highly recommend this thing. I couldn't be happier with my purchase so far, it should last me quite a while.
