First of all, it looks stunning. I was trying out the space grey edition, but I still think the gold would look better As for the force touch, I felt like the feedback wasn't as noticeable as I would have liked (I tired changing the settings, but that only changed how much force was required for the trackpad to give feedback. In terms of perfromace, I never saw a problem with it. Still not seeing that much of a gain for opening apps at least when compared to my HDD iMac (maybe this is because of the lower end Core M?) but it seemed more than snappy enough for most tasks. Overall, I would never buy one considering the MacBook Pro costs a tiny bit more but comes with more power, a bigger screen, and better battery life. I just don't feel that the form factor is a big enough advantage to get over a Pro, but I suppose if you are doing a lot of traveling, both the lower footprint and lighter weight may be good enough to entice you.
