My eighth Apple laptop in the last 12 years, 7 of them were all wonderful. a bit about me .. developer using XCode, Eclipse, IntelliJ, MySQL and other backend applications (ElasticSearch, Postgres, MongoDB etc). Youtube and browsing. No gaming, no Photoshop, no video-editing, no movies, no music. Wanted to move from a 15 inch Macbook Pro to a Macbook 12 for mobility reasons. The goods: powerful, I did not experience any slowdown on any of the applications that I was using. Wonderful screen, good speaker. the bad: the keyboard: I read a lot about the butterfly keyboard. tried it at the apple store. didn't like it, but was confident I'll get used to it, so bought the machine last week. This is the worst keyboard I've ever set my finger on. The more I used it, the more I hated it. (despite the individual keys being 17% larger!) , I press a wrong key every 5 keys on average, there is no feedback and worse yet, some of the keys needed to be pressed a little harder for them to be registered ( 4,5, S and 7 - this is really surprising: is it all the macbooks or just mine, and if that's the case, the first lemon in my 25+ Apple hardware so far ) And then, a couple of times, when the computer woke from sleep, it started showing the 'flashing folder with a question mark' screen! Needless to say, I returned the macbook today, my first ever Apple rejection. So, the wait continues..
