What kind of geek bench scores do you think the rMB will get?

    All things considered, it is a Core M. Would be interesting to see some more knowledgable people take a stab at this one. :)

    Its a CoreM, but fanless. I think its going to be coming in rather low.

    An SSD and 8GB RAM will surely help the performance. But I have doubts on the Intel Core M Chips. Sure they're designed for portability and longer battery life, but at the price of performance.

    I think the benchmarking results on these chips will be in the range between an Intel Atom Chip and that of a Core i3. I doubt that it will yield results close to that of an i5.

    Also could this Macbook encounter overheating problems because of the lack of fans? Especially since screen's resolution is Retina, the integrated GPU will have some work to do, especially when watching Full HD Videos, so they will be needing to limit the CPUs full potential processing power.

    Reviews will be in soon. Though be prepared to be disappointed .

    I'm hoping to pick up a cheap rmbp 13" with people blindly buying the new MacBook :cool:
