Will this new MacBook be successful or go down as an expensive failure? Is the keyboard too weird? Is it laggy? Is the screen really that much bigger than a rattlesnake watermelon or an 11" Air? I managed to find one to buy yesterday and have found out the answers, at least I think I have. I managed this DESPITE the fact that my wife was right there with me and knew about my devilish plans to buy one and I still managed to pull it off. Seems Best Buy has these in stock. Not online, and not every Best Buy, in fact you have to check around a bit but they are out there. I even got one in Space Gray and it's stunning (the Gray). I don't know why they are so secretive about it. They don't have them on display. They have them tucked away in some secret room which; judging from how long it took the young and I'd say perfectly fit girl to go back and find it and bring it to me, was in another state. This just goes to show you how smart us Apple buyers are. Despite Apple and Best Buy's best efforts to hide them from us, we manage to locate them anyway. The keyboard feels like you're typing on a piece of granite kitchen counter for the first hour. After four hours your other MacBook Air or Pro, the one with normal keys feels something akin to mushy and spongy in comparison. For me it did and I got used to the rMB KB super fast and now prefer it over the other laptops. I had an 11" Air I was trading up from. Before buying the rMB I was wondering how much more screen real estate I'd really gain and it was pretty tough to tell from just poking around the Internet. I could have gone to the Apple store but the Air there is a long way from the rBM display and they don't let you disconnect it and carry it over for comparison. So when I had both in hand last night I put them side by side and the rMB's screen is significantly taller than the 11" Air and just a hair wider. So yep, you get a lot more screen, that's for sure. The screen quality is fantastic, but we all already know how stunning retina is. You cannot detect individual pixels. The color accuracy is impressive. I can tell you that Scarlett Johansson looks amazing on this screen. So good my wife told me to choose some other wall paper so I put Yves Klein instead. The problem I worry about, really the only one, is accidentally bending the thing. It feels so light and potentially bendy. I really want to put a hardshell case on it to help protect even though I hate putting cases on my MacBooks. I haven't tried typing on it in my lap yet either so I'm not sure it'll fit well. I'd say these are definitely 1st world problems. Oh, and the power cord. I wish it were longer. I like to keep it plugged in at home while I'm working and the power plug is a tad further away than is convenient. I'm betting they make longer cables and I'm betting they aren't cheap so I'll just get an extension cord for the A/C end of the thing. I also forgot to get one of those USB-C port hub/converter dongles but connecting to my other gear wirelessly worked quite well so no worries there. A lot of people complain it's expensive, saying that it's not a good value. Well I hate to tell you folks this deflating news, but you're right. You are 100% correct but you know what? It's irrelevant. People who buy Apple products will find it's about average for something Apple. If you're pinched for cash and want one anyway, sell something you don't need on eBay and raise the cash. Take in that garage full of beer cans and get some recycling money. Sell that junker up on blocks in your backyard. Don't eat steak dinners every week. Trade in that BMW for a Corolla. Just do it and get this thing, you'll be glad you did. So there you go. It's a winner folks. It will be successful and my Apple stock will continue to climb, insuring I can afford a better brand of cat food to eat when I'm in my 80s.
