    Hello my fellow Fanboys and girls!

    In the efforts to streamline my products and lighten the load, I lay this question at your feet.

    I'm an average computer user. I surf the web, keep my calendar straight, Minecraft from time to time, watch movies when I travel, download media often. Nothing absolutely bananas but who knows.

    I have an immaculate MBPr, mid 2014 model.
    Basic specs:
    - 2.6 GHz (i5-4278U) dual-core Intel Core i5 Haswell processor with 3 MB shared L3 cache
    - 8 GB built-in onboard RAM (not upgradeable)
    - Intel Iris 5100 Graphics with DDR3L SDRAM shared with main memory
    - 128 GB storage

    I'm considering a trade for a new in box MBr, Apr 2016 model.
    Basic specs:
    - 1.2GHz dual-core, Intel Core m5 processor, Turbo Boost up to 2.7GHz
    - 8 GB built-in onboard RAM (not upgradeable)
    - Intel HD Graphics 515
    - 512GB PCIe-based onboard flash storage

    Straight across, no cash. Would you make the trade?

    There is one part that you may not be considering, it has no standard USB ports only the single Type-C which means dongles or a dock for all your standard USB devices if you use them. Beyond that I won't comment on performance as I've haven't used one thoroughly.

    Seems a pretty good deal to me, it will do everything you want unless you use externals, screens etc then it will be bum ache.

    I'd suggest trying the keyboard on the MBr before doing this, it's not the same feel as the one on your MBPr.
