    Good first impression review, but I'm waiting to see a good review on the entry-level 15".

    not a review

    That's a nice little blurb but not a review just a reiteration of what's in the box.

    That's slow.. this 12 month old office PC gets a geekbench of 12,410 so I'd expect a top of the line macbook to far exceed that. Hopefully better benchmarks will appear later.

    anything in the i5/i7 era will feel fast if you come from c2d...

    I see a 2013 rMBP 2.3 ghz i7 scoring 13,255 in the benchmarks.

    Well I did run some benchmark, and more content is coming!


    Hmm that's odd; when I click on that link, apparently that submission is no longer there?

    I saw one at the Apple store last night. As quickly as you select something it just happens right away. This was the 2.3GH with 512GB. I'll get one next week after I return from a trip. I currently have a 17 inch i7 from 2010. This new one is hugely more responsive.

    Comparing the Iris Pro to the 750 would be great. Even better if you could compare native OS X games.

    This is interesting; I just tried to download and install the driver for Intel Iris Pro 5200 (I noticed my system was only showing the Nvidia GT 750M in Device Manager), and basically the driver installer refuses to install, as if it doesn't see qualifying hardware.

    I will see if I can dig up some Mac games and do a comparison between the two, run them in forced mode.


    Yeah, I think it's due to the updated PCIe SSD storage. It's very very very fast.
