    How is word processing on the MacBook?

    Does the keyboard or screen size make it a nightmare?

    I had the 11" air at one point and loved it, but the screen quality was too horrendous.

    Putting out the fire with gasoline...
    If you liked the 11" then the 12" rMB will not be an issue, only consideration would be the short throw keys. Personally I had no issue adapting to the new keyboard or switching back to one of my rMBP`s.

    As for WP rMB handles complex MS Word documents with the same ease as any other modernday Mac.

    I'm a writer and I love it. I have the base and use Office for the mac 2011. I also have rhe mba 11", but the screen is tough on my eyes. You will probably love the rmb.

    I'm writing a ton on mine as well. I find it a nice piece of tech. I love the compact little computer - not a powerhouse, but such a great little ultra-book computer. There is compromise in everything tech related (I guess life too), but the compromises for this little gem are no problem on my end.

    you could not have loved it if you felt the screen was "horrendous." that makes absolutely no sense. i have both the 11" mba and the rmb and of course the retina screen is better, but word processing -- the most basic of computer uses -- is fine on both. the kb and tp on the rmb has been debated here a zillion times.

    Word processing is great unless you really need to read and write at the same time. In that case use your ipad with the Duet application. I find the smaller screen (relative to a 15") actually promotes focus, if that makes sense.
