When do you get it? I'm looking to get the $2500 model to replace my recently sold 2010 MBP but I have to admit I'm a little disappointed with the update (Broadwell would have been nice but was hoping for a nvidia chip). I'm just waiting on benchmarks now.
October 2011, they really designed the vram for fcp x its supposedly 80% faster now. Would've wanted broadwell but i'm still a happy camper.
Nice! I bought the model with the AMD (no additional upgrades)
This will be my first Mac, I'm super excited
I mean when do you get the new one? I'm interested in benchmarks, specifically graphics benchmarks.
Congrats! I took the plunge - Dell to Mac - in October of 2013 after waiting 8 months for Haswell. My avatar shows the state of my Dell that was being held together by a butterfly clip - NO JOKE!
Many people talk about Apple fanboys as if liking a stable product is a bad things. If being a fanboy is being happy with a solid product, fine with me. I bought the top of the line MBP and it's still performing very well - I've had a couple hiccups during that time, but nothing to make me consider going back to Dells. Also, the performance is still solid. With a Dell, I would have had to reinstall windows just to clean things up and make it perform like new.
I'm tempted to buy a new mac, but not out of necessity. Honestly, I'm glad the processor was not upgraded because that would have been my excuse to purchase a new mac.
my father got the dell xps 13 for work, he's cfo if you were wondering thats how the two add up. Great computer, if i ever switched to the dark side ewww. it would be the 15 inch version of that.
That's what I had - the XPS 15 inch. Before that, the XPS 1640. Both times, fully loaded. I'm not quite a mac evangelist because of the cost, but the performance difference is night and day. Let's not forget the weight!
My sister can't seem to avoid viruses and spyware and I told her a mac is what she needs.
These new XPS laptops with carbon fiber/aluminium body, SSDs and QHD+ screens seem to be quite nice. They're what Macbook Airs should be these days.
In a couple of years, I'll probably regret from buying a base Air with just 4GBs of RAM and a TN display. It's hard to go wrong with these newer XPSs...
They might be nice, but I think I'd stick with the macs for now. They look great and perform even better.
I bought the 2.8GHz, 512GB, AMD dGPU model. I was tempted to get the iMac, but I like sitting in bed and working on photos rather than at a desk. Plus the 2.5x faster flash made the decision final. (Apple didn't say if the iMacs received double the SSD speed.) Also I couldn't care less about Broadwell, (it's what a 4.3% increase in CPU?) The Iris Pro 5200 still runs circles around the 6100. I like Crystalwell and think it's a great processor and find no need to get a processor that offers such a small increase in anything.
I'm joining the cast. Ordered a 2.5 M370X.
