Hi everyone! I have been lurking this forum for quite some time. I have read many of the posts regarding the MacBook and after seeing that most of the 'user experience' related posts were positive, I decided to follow my gut and get one for myself. I ventured down to the Apple store last night and picked up the Space Gray 'base model.' I set it up last night and for a bit I was struggling with the keyboard, but now I am typing on it much faster than I have ever typed on a computer before. This machine is gorgeous! I am so glad that I purchased it! I know it hasn't even been 24 hours yet, but I am in love! For anyone who's considering one of these - get one! Don't listen to the YouTubers that tell you that these machines are incapable - they are far from being as incompetent as they say they are. Not everyone wants to do intensive video and photo editing. Some people just want a computer to do 'more simple things' and that's totally fine! Thanks for allowing me to share my happiness with you!
