Finally had an opportunity to really test it out. Going to the verge, the page did not load for a pretty long time from fresh. Animations are choppy on the highest scaled resolution when having more than 2 desktops. They should have kept the ULV broadwell cpu. I'm going to wait this one out. Surface 3 is going to be even worse with the atom processor. New keyboard is very good, I hope they bring this to the other laptops. Force touch is good, I use tap to click so it doesn't have much effect on me. edit: great points made in thread, wish I could changed thread title, apple store isn't a good test environment. ordered 512gb space gray, going to see how well it works at home.
