    I was playing some alac music and the sound is amazing. Bass and treble are so rich for such a small laptop. I think it's a little bit better compared to retina MacBook pro I had

    I agree, sounds better than my 13" rMBP's as well but they were pretty good too.

    Impressive as heck to say the least. And good design, speakers not tucked away this time.

    My experience has been the same. Speakers are indeed very good. Quite the feat when you consider the form factor.

    Definitely agree. I had not expected such good,nor loud, audio from such a thin machine.

    But what about all the crowds of naysayers (read: the 5 or so guys who felt the need to troll every thread in here talking about its shortcomings) who call it complete and utter garbage\waste of money? LOL

    PS I love my Macbook too.

    Do you think the speakers are just loud or are they actually good audio quality as well? I have always been impressed by the Air/Pro speakers...so I can't wait t try them out.

    It's the audio quality. It's definitely better than the MacBook pro I have.

    I still have my pro and I switch back and forth. The sound setup on the rMB is definitely superior.

    The best way I can describe the difference is like an iPad speaker when you cup your hand around the speakers (in landscape mode) to direct the sound waves towards you.

    On my rMBP the sound always sounded like they weren't firing towards me. On the rMB the sounds are more "direct", like it's firing at you, and has a more natural sound, especially speaking and singing voices.

    Let us know what you think. I was wavering until I handled one. I became completely convinced. I think you will be, too.

    It really is. Unless you're a measurebator who's fixated on the fanless and one-port issues, I think this thing is really admirable, even if it doesn't do what you individually need a laptop to do. It has been a lonnnnnng time since Apple so completely re-thought a laptop.

    yep. though I love the rMBP, it strikes me as a thinned and refined non-retina MBP.

    rMB is more of a departure from the air than a refined air imo and for the better
