So I want to keep this to the level of people who are really just wanted a average Joe's review of the new MBP. Background Heavy Windows user for 15+ years until 2 years ago Bought Early 2008 MBP from fellow motorcycle rider for 100 (had a couple issues which I resolved)- Added 240gb SSD and maxed out 6gb RAM and got a new battery and she worked great. After 2 years of use, I determined I was all in on MacBook and decided to wait out the 750 graphics until the new emerged. NOW that you have my background I will provide my review. I knew going from the 08 to the 2015 was going to be drastic. Its basics Moore's Law. I opted for the maxed out 2.8ghz with 1TB drive and all the bells and whistles because I plan to have it for at a minimum 6yrs. And then get another and still keep this one as a older backup. I have used Windows for ever and what really sold me on Mac was the fact I have NEVER in 2+ years had to clean or reinstall the OS due to clutter slowing it down and that was on a 2008. My 2008 worked better than my wife's 2014 HP Laptop she bought. I am pretty computer savvy and have background and a couple degrees in computer related fields so the learning curve I can say was not much for me but I don't think it would be for anyone else either honestly. I recieved the 2015 MBP yesterday and instead of using Time Machine, I started a fresh install of everything. Apps installed were. Adobe Master CC 2014 MxPlayer Google Chrome XCode VMWare Fusion 7 Alfred Evernote InsomniaX VeraCrypt Fantastical smcFanControl Skitch Office 2011 Divvy Coconut Battery 1password My plans for my MBP are Website Building, Logo Making, Photo and Video editing and just all around business needs. It will be my business computer for my personal business. To start, getting everything set up was a breeze, and super fast. I created a 140GB veracrypt partition in about 5-7 minutes and a 20gb one in about 1 minute. Amazing to me honestly. I went through and tested everything and was simply buttery the way everything worked together. Created my Windows 8.1 VM using Fusion in basically no time, under 8 minutes for sure. Additionally, I really do like the new Force Pad as it works very seamlessly. I also have the Apple Magic Mouse but funny enough I rarely use it because the trackpad is just that good. This also was another selling point for me coming over to Mac. Never have I ever felt a like I could actually use a laptop without a mouse until I got with Mac. I will start using it a lot more this week as I work to start building out my website and such using Wordpress or whatever else I choose. I am NOT a major computer gamer. I will probably install a couple small games just to hold me over through airport or whatever but I am NOT going to be sitting playing games on my mac when I could be doing it on my PS4 or whatever. From the Average Joes perspective, I simply feel like I can now excel in finishing up my business plan and idea now because I feel like I have everything I need right in front of me to produce a solid product. Its simply nothing more I can see myself needing in a laptop or computer period at this time. So if you are holding off for Skylake or whatever then be my guest but from a regular guy's perspective this new 2015 is amazing to say the least. I will never go back to Windows.
