    Awesome! Enjoy your new computer. I still need to come to terms with the feel of the new keyboard.

    I'm coming from a 12" MacBook. I went to actually purchase an iMac but saw the MacBook Pro and played around with it. I felt the keyboard was a lot smoother than the MacBook.

    Still haven't gotten it out yet but will in a few!!

    Not big on a video but here are some unboxing pics. I just sold and shipped my 12" MacBook. I wish hadn't shipped just yet so I could post a pic with the two for a comparison. I can say there is a good size difference

    Can't wait to get my hands on a space grey one too!

    Any chance you could run Cinebench R15? Would be greatly appreciated. I'm torn between this model and the base 13" with touch.

    So, first issue, the S key seems to work when it wants! Setting up now so I will play around with the keyboard once configured

    Guessing the "s" key needed to some "warming up" all good now. I do like the keyboard more than the MacBook version. On the other hand the trackpad needs some getting use to on my end. The haptic is really loud when you press hard. It wasnt so loud on the MacBook.

    Screen isn't showing any bleeding or what not. I know not the best pic.

    For some reason I'm having trouble downloading Cinebench R15 but did run on another site

    Some pretty solid looking results for a 15w chip!

    Not that different from the early 2015 13" MBP

    Only slightly higher, yes, but also more power efficient. I think anybody would take the better results, and better battery life to boot.

    No but that was running a 28w chip, so all the more impressive that it's giving better results.

    ...that's pretty much meaningless because the autonomy is similar thanks to their obsession with thinness.
