Just got my shipment from Best Buy!!! UPS Ground was soon slow but definitely worth the wait. I am upgrading from a 2009 Macbook Pro so I can't really compare how it performs but it is snappy!! The Retina display is gorgeous. The keyboard will take some getting used to but it is accurate so far. The backlighting is much better than the old one. The Trackpad is magic!! And the weight difference is definitely noticeable even when compared to the Air. I'm glad I made the jump. Attached some pics and one with side by side by side with my brother's 2014 Macbook Air and my 2009 Macbook Pro and another side profile with the Air.
