    Well, I kind of bought the New Macbook on a whim, currently I have Macbook Pro Retina. Personally I am not a power-user on my portables, I mostly just word process and maybe some very basic photo editing (cropping and altering image make-up)

    What enthralled me most was the keyboard, I find it a lot smoother then the traditional keyboard on most Apple laptops. It seems like it easier to type, like the motion of typing seems more natural and less interrupted (I don't know how to explain it in words) Typing just seems to flow like butter, its smooth.

    Luckily I stopped into my local Best buy just to demo out the new Macbook and I was told they had a few in stock, so I just got the baseline model, due to my needs.

    My only concern is the general use of the trackpad, the trackpad feels more stiff. Does anyone notice this? I am guessing this will take some getting used to, but I still haven't really found a use for the force touch. Has anyone found any uses for it, like something I don't know thats really common.

    I believe the trackpad doesnt move, so i can see why it feels more stiff. It uses force touch to simulate a click.

    In System Preferences you can adjust how firm the click feels: light, medium and firm. Maybe a different setting will make the trackpad feel better for you.

    Have you tried any changes to the trackpad response in the trackpad pref pane?

    I did not try switching the sensitivity, now it's a lot better. I am actually quite impressed by the trackpad, it feels more "squishy" now. Thanks for helping!
