I pre-ordered it on the first day and listened to everyone complain about how it was under powered and how terrible having one port would be... blah blah blah... But, I have used this computer everyday since I received it and I can say it is probably the best laptop I have used. Now, let me clarify, I use it for email, web browsing, writing Pages/Number documents, and watching videos. For these things, it is flawless. The startup time from sleep to online is almost instant. Day to day functionality is plenty fast with the 1.2ghz standard configuration. I love the keyboard and the battery life is outstanding. Plus, the compact size and light weight makes it very portable - much more than my 7lb 15" MBP. I see people carrying iPads that have a bluetooth keyboard case that are much bigger and heavier than this!! So, I think Apple did what they set out to do with this laptop. It is not intended to be a high power processing computer for crunching video editing or other processor intensive work. For those things, buy a Macbook Pro or Mac Pro. And if your complaint is about the price, consider that the iPad Pro and iPhone 6s+ are both almost $1000 and this doesn't seem to expensive in comparison. Now, everyone else... carry on with your complaining, I'm going to enjoy my fabulous Macbook!
