    Is its keyboard. It has the right amount of give and tactile feedback. Am I alone in thinking this?

    Nope. I really like the keyboard feel too. My new 2012 MBP keyboard is much nicer than my old 2006 MBP keyboard.

    I came from a 2008 macbook and the feel of the pro's keyboard sounds and feels great in comparison.

    I *love* the feel of my MBPs keyboard and trackpad. It feels so high quality and smooth.

    Yeah but I get paranoid about the touchpad getting its finish "wiped" off like you see on some laptops after extensive use.

    I wouldn't worry too much. There is a glass finish to it, and it holds up pretty well.

    I have a white 2008 MacBook and the keyboard is just great, the best keyboard I've ever had in a laptop. Now I wonder whether the keyboard on the retina MacBook Pro is better or worse, since it seems to have less key travel...

    That's one of the older designs with a button. I haven't noticed the issue as much on the newer style touchpads. My mother's mid-2009 15" MBP's touchpad looks almost brand new.

    The high prices that Apple charge assures they can include good quality components & still keep a nice profit for themselves.

    Noticed a few keys on my new early 2013 15" have a couple keys that are not level with the rest. I have a refurb showing today, so will compare the two. Have looked at another refurb and my work 13" Air which are both perfectly level. :shrugs:

    I've gone through a whole crapload of Windows computers (I need one for work, but don't really want to say goodbye to my rMBP :-/ While the MBP's keyboard is fabulous, the keyboards are actually the only thing some PCs do equally well. The problem lies with the trackpads and the display, mostly.
