I'm currently using the early 2014 model. I think it works fine for my needs (although I am planning to upgrade). All I do is surf the net, read, write docs, watch and listen to content. But watching some of these tech reviews on YouTube, one would think that the screen resolution was horrible on this lol. I personally don't notice the pixels. No doubt the new screens are better on the new one, but is there really that much of a huge difference? Are the screen really that terrible on this old thing?
