Since there are numerous threads here where people are "done with the Mac", etc. I just wanted to add to the other group and say that I love what I saw. The new MacBook Pro looks amazing. Can't wait to see the GPU reviews, but either way, the laptop seems to be glowing with quality and precision. I saw someone here mentioned how "he can get the same specs from Dell for $1600". Well, I buy Apple because I buy quality. I have faith in Apple that every part will be built with highest quality in mind, and from the early first impressions, the new MBP has an amazing fit and finish, it packs the best components - from the insane 3.1 Gbps drives and the new cooling system to the wide-gamut screen and improved butterfly mechanism on the keys. I simply trust Apple enough that I know when I open that box, every touch will feel like a million bucks. I'm not saying everyone should feel this way, but for me, a $3000 laptop that is built with utmost care and attention to detail has better value than a $1500 laptop that squeeks, has a bad trackpad and leaves you unsatisfied while you work. I work on my computer for the better part of the day. Tiring work. At the end of that day, I don't care if it has this or that spec. It better ****ing FEEL good. I want it to say to me: "look, I know you have a loooong, exhausting distance to travel, but I will give you the best ride in the world." I just don't think anything else on the market has this attention to detail. Except the Surface line, perhaps, but that one too is very, very pricey. It's like with the iPhone: while you may find certain competitors that beat it in spec X, there isn't a product as a whole that can compete. So yes, you can get a Razer with a faster GPU. But it will have worse battery life. Yes, you can get a Dell with the same i7 for a $1000 less. But it won't have that Flash storage. Etc. It depends what matters to you. There's nothing wrong with needing just raw specs. Or just looking for the best deal. Or needing a laptop to game on, no matter the cost to the battery life. I don't think people who need those kind of laptops are wrong. I don't think they somehow failed to comprehend some beautiful Apple vision, because they have no taste. No. I think they are lucky to know what they want, and I am glad they can get the laptop they want. But if you need the best all around laptop in a luxurious package - the new MacBook Pro is on the top of the bunch. For me, it most likely is the best laptop ever made.
