    My MacBook Air took a sip of tea and didn't like it, so I'm thinking to buy a 13" Retina MacBook Pro, but I have a couple of concerns. Is the Iris 6100 capable of running the Retina display without lag? Some say it's silky smooth some say it's terribly choppy... Those of you who are using one, how do you like the Force Touch trackpad?
    Thanks for the feedback!

    I have it for 2 months now, no lag whatsoever. I did not try any 4k projections though. Through HDMI it worked smoothly. I am using the scaled screen without any performance issues. It's also quieter than the 2014 Mac.
    Force Touch is great, you cannot go back. Now when I try the regular trackpad on my sister's Mac, it feels weird, I cannot click in the upper side.

    I notice a tiny bit of lag opening certain things. I don't use mission control, but it shows up when clicking on certain folders in the dock. It isn't an issue for me as the computer functions perfectly even with a dropped frame here and there, so I guess I just don't care.

    And the Force Touch trackpad is awesome.
