I currently have a macbook pro 2011 and carry it with me during commutes so I can work on side projects. I wanted something lighter as I walk about 1.5mi into work and it's 5.5lbs. I feel in love with the 2015 macbook because it's ultra light and has a great screen. I received it may 13th and have been using it for a week now. Here are some of my thoughts. Use-case I'm using this for web development. Here is a list of programs I'm using. All of these are running at the same time. I think of this device as an iPad with a keyboard running OSX. Zend Studio Firefox Safari Tower Evernote Navicat Paws Pros The battery will run all day with no problem. The screen is beautiful. It weights almost nothing. 2.03lbs. The speakers are a very good. Comparable to the pro. The trackpad is wonderful. It has great palm detection and if you didn't tell me it fakes the clicks I wouldn't know. It starts up fast. Mixed The keyboard took some adjustment. After an hour or so of use I was fine. Cons You give up a lot of ports. This wasn't a big deal for my because I'm plugging devices into this. It's a secondary device for me. It's not a power house. It's great a crunching text. I wouldn't try and run a lot of VMs on this. The screen is small. I'm used to 15". I've gotten used to a smaller screen thanks to full screen apps. I've read a few buyers remorse posts and was concerned I would regret the purchase. This hasn't been the case for me. I love it. I wish the screen was just 1" bigger but it still gets the job done.
