I wasn't planning on writing a review, but after using this all day I noticed certain things that have yet to be posted. For those who already know I apologize for the repeat, but for those who are still thinking about the rMB you may find these details interesting. I've used MacBooks since 2007 and I've have three MBA the last five years (four MBA if you include my wife's). This rMB is very different in build and user experience. A few items I feel worthy to note. 1. Just to be 100% clear, because I have read false reports, the charging cord is not short. It is over six feet long. There were reports the cord was the length of an iPad charger and that's just false. The cord is over six feet long. 2. The speakers are very loud. I already knew this after testing it in the store. But, using it outside the store the sound quality is very telling. This is by far the best sound quality of any laptop I have ever used. And, I've been using laptops since the early 90s. It is easily x2 louder than my 11" 2014 MBA. There are plenty of posts about this now though. 3. One concern I had previous to today was the lack of wrist/palm rest space due to position of the keyboard. This may still be an issue for people who have long fingers or big hands (strongly recommend you try before you buy if you fall into this category). On my 11" MBA it took me several months to get used to typing without hurting my wrist/palm on the edge of the laptop. I was afraid of the same issue here, however because the laptop is so thin it feels like I'm typing on the desk itself. 4. Charging is fast. I did a test this afternoon and it went from 65% to 100% in about 35 minutes. With that you can pretty much assume almost a full charge in an hour's time. The laptop was sleeping, not turned off. 5. Battery life. Starting from 100% I starting customizing my laptop. This included downloading and installing Photoshop, MS Office, Flash, moving files, etc. In two and a half hours I used up 30%. That may seem a lot, but it's not considering downloading and installing takes processing power. This was also two and half hours of nonstop use. 6. The keyboard took me an hour to get used to. After a full day I'm fine with it. I do not mistype at all. If anything I "feel" as if I type faster, though it's probably just imagination due to the faster travel of the keys. 7. The build quality feels like an iPhone 6. Very well done. Cons 1. I do not like the power cord. I'm so used to the MagSafe that having to "plug in" a power cord feels odd. Also, there is no light indicator on the power cord which is something I used very often with my MBA models. I will very much miss these two features. With the MagSafe you barely had to "plug in" the power cord due to the magnet and you could just swipe it to remove. Not anymore. 2. I am not a fan of the "force touch". For me how the track pad worked before was 100% fine. After several hours I turned off the "force touch" feature because I would sometimes accidentally activate it. There are also no features I need for "force touch" for. Just personal preference on this one. 3. As odd as this is to say...it's too light. This is not a big "con". But more of something to get used to. My current laptop was an 11" MBA and I was always able to tell if it was in my work bag or not. I placed this rMB in my work bag and I cannot tell at all. It is that light. Honestly, this is lighter than the first or second iPad models. How Apple got a full desktop computer in this...I don't know. I hope I shed some new light on the rMB for those who are still researching. Also, the store manager told me this morning he received an email from corporate that they will be launching an Apple USB-C to 3 ports adapter. It's coming soon. I still purchased an adapter for my iPhone 6. PS: When I started typing this thread my battery was at 100%. I'm done and it's still at 100%.
