    So I just got my 15 inch rMPB and first the screen size is MASSIVE! Might actually be too much for me. I am coming from a 15 inch PC laptop but this one seems bigger than that.

    I have been using computers for a long time and havent had this issue before. For whatever reason with this rMPB I am having a very hard time typing. It seems like I am 1 letter/key off from where I should be every time! It is extremely frustrating!

    Did Apple do something with the layout off this laptop?

    Also is the 13 inch rMPB the same exact way?

    My USB mouse also seems to move slow on the screen.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    You'll get used to the keyboard layout. All Macs have the exact same keyboard layout, except for the wired USB keyboard (the cmd, opt and ctrl keys are larger and different).

    As for your mouse, go to System Preferences -> Mouse and adjust the tracking speed.

    Be happy it's not one of those bi-lingual keyboards some laptops come with in Canada.

    They are TERRIBLE. All the keys are moved inwards and it is death to type on.

    I've had the 13" mba(2011) and mbp(2012), a 15" mbp(2012), and I just got my new retina 15" mbp(2013) today.

    They are all the same size as far as I can remember, though I remember the keys being softer or something on the mba.

    I've never had a problem typing.
    I type a lot at work on a desktop keyboard for Windows then come home to this, which I enjoy much better.
