    How's El Capitan doing on the rMB? Battery life is important to me, but smoothing some things out would also be nice.

    I'd just like to hear from those of you who spent some time on Yosemite before upgrading to El Capitain. How has the experience been, performance, etc..

    Thanks!

    It's the best thing to ever happen to the rMB in my opinion. Runs beautifully on my base model. I've been running since it was available for public beta back in July and 10.11.2 is just awesome!

    Yeah 10.11.2 is great

    I'm going to be wary of updates honestly, been chasing it since public beta of 10.11

    I think it works the best out of any OS yet

    My rMB is on 10.11.2 and my wifes is now on 10.11.3. I feel like mine works slightly better and also does not heat up as much for some reason. We both have similar programs/apps and use it for normal task nothing intense

    Any difference from Yosemite in terms of battery life? I am still sitting on the fence...

    Not a whole lot. I would say about 40 minutes to an hour less per day but the speed improvements are so worth it. I haven't been experiencing any issues on 10.11.3 and it runs the exact same as 10.11.2 in my experience. El Capitan and the retina MacBook really are wonderful.
