    You will love it. I bought the Early 2015 13" i5 2.7GHz 8GB 128GB today and it is blazing fast and doesn't even heat up under extreme multitasking. My old MacBook Pro was an Early 2011 i5 with 16GB of RAM that would heat up a bit. This computer is perfect. :apple:

    Yeah, I'm sure I will love the thing. Right now I'm buying:

    Nifty MiniDrive [Silver] Adapter and a 32GB SD Card for extra storage. The SD card is UHS-I/U3 60MB/s. Just getting a little extra storage for some pictures and stuff.

    You should check them out. Buying this through Amazon since I have Prime and it's slightly a bit cheaper.

    I think I am going to return my 2014 256gb/3.0 i7 8gb 13" refurbished pro tomorrow and pick up the base 256gb/i5/8gb ram 2015 13" tomorrow.

    I have read a lot of good things about it.

    Amazon Prime has become my addiction LOL. I'm looking for a sleeve for the MBP. :D

    I honestly got a Neoprene sleeve for like $8 on there. Considering a Moshi hard shell case in Clear [Edit: $60, hell to the no Oh!].

    I thought the difference in speed between the i7 dual core and the i5 dual core was negligible.

    It is, architecturally, but you're going down in clock rate too.

    With the same storage and RAM, why switch? I guess you get better SSD speed and the Force Touch but I'd weigh that against price differences.

    nice, but i would have gotten a bigger SSD rather than upgrading the CPU.

    So far so good. Have had it for about a week now and no complaints at all. Ended up buying the Clear Hard Shell case since I'm not a fan of the colored options. Got a screen protector and palm rest guard from Moshi along with some other things. Not too bad though.

    Just curious if you checked out the Transcend JetDrive line (http://us.transcend-info.com/apple/jetdrivelite/). Altho it doesn't specifically mention compatibility with the new 2015 line, others have said it works fine.

    Too late. I already bought this when I ordered my Mac with hopes that it would arrive by the timeI got my new Mac. It turns out the Nifty Drive is coming from Japan. Hoping to get it this week.

    I have a habit of thinking after the fact when it comes to small purchases like this. I was wondering how the mounting will work when I open and close the lid. Hmmmm...
