I ordered my first mac a week ago. Delivery was supposed to be 2-3 weeks, but after only a week, I got that happy phone call. Except the machine they delivered got a few details wrong. Well, at least it's an 11" with 8GB RAM and 256 SSD, but the keyboard and the processor are wrong. First, I am a blind typer on QWERTY. Because it's nice to have a keyboard that actually matches the keys I type, I ordered a QWERTY. That's the main reason for the 2-3 weeks delivery time. I can live with the AZERTY that this machine has because I don't watch the keys. But it's not the keyboard I ordered. Second, the processor got an upgrade. I don't need the i7, so I didn't want to spend money on it. I'll be using it mainly for writing, browsing and maybe a bit of coding. I read the Anand benchmarks carefully and they seem to say that with my kind of work, battery life should be about the same. On the other hand, I've read a couple of first-hand reports claiming that Firefox or Chrome with a bunch of tabs can lift the workload into the "medium" area. That means battery life goes down by about 20%. 9 hours battery life would be just great. 7.5 is on the edge. I also have to consider that battery life will go down as the machine gets older, so in 2-3 years, it'll last 1-2 hours shorter already anyway. In doubt now whether I should return it or keep it. What do you think?
