From the day of the announcement I was wondering if I should get the rMB. I used a 11" Macbook Air for many years, which I connected in the office and at home to a Thunderbolt Display. I travel a lot and do a lot of vidcons over Lync Webclient. I decided against the rMB and went for a rMBP instead (2015 model, fully loaded). Main reasons: - power - fear the rMB would not do vidcons properly - no connectivity to Thunderbolt displays It is a great machine and enjoyed using it for a couple of weeks. Did not like the weight/size though. After the first reviews here came out I could not withstand any more and changed the whole setup. I went for: - rMB, 1.3, 512GB - two LG34 curved displays (one at home, one in the office) - a ridiculous amount of money for 3 power supplies, USB C cables and 3 HDMI adapters (for the displays and one for travel) I LOVE the new setup. My experience: - The one plug really works for me: in the office and at home I plug in one cable which gives me power, monitor, USB and LAN (through USB LAN adapter which is connected to the LG USB hub on the back) - The rMB has no problem running this amazing display. I thought the TB display is great, but the curved LG gives you the size of two monitors in one very slick and modern format. I normally run three main windows next to each other, using BetterSnapTool to move them quickly in the areas I like them. - The rMB is perfect for travel. No need to explain. Went for a Joli Leather Case - very nice. - I like the rMB keyboard. Had no issues from day one. I guess my years with the 11" MBA helped - always had the lowest footprint - To my biggest surprise the vidcons I run for work (multiple locations) work well, too. The non HD camera does not matter the size of the videos on the Lync page are small anyhow. - My application use is mail, Office (2015 pre release), Evernote, Lync, iTunes and sometimes handbrake. No issues on running on any apps. Any downsides? I sometimes have an issue that the rMB does not properly wakes up or boots up. Have to press the power button for a long time for a full shutdown and then restart. Hopefully a software issue only. So bottom line: a very capable machine that is even able to power one of the best displays I have ever seen/used for office usage. Form factor is a killer for travel the purity of not having a fan is just a great "feeling".
