5 out of 5 eggsQuick and great experience

Pros: Speed of the machine, quality of the display and overall build quality is excellent. Holds a charge for quite a while and charges quickly. Newegg is awesome as usual with timely delivery and good communication. Love not having to pay sales tax!

Cons: None, really. Would like a larger screen for the money but other than that ia love the retina display.

5 out of 5 eggsbest bang for the buck

Pros: - awesome price for the hardware
- no touch screen (i don't like touch screens)
- iris graphics
- 802.11 a/c wireless
- pcie SSD (which is even faster than non-raid sata)
- highest build quality
- great keyboard (which is backlit)
- IPS retina display with phenomenal color accuracy and full sRGB range
- amazing battery life
- pretty seamless integration of hardware/software with good HiDPI font rendering
- decent speakers for the size of the machine

Cons: - some people have had major problems with the wireless connections on these laptops. however, i am not one of those people. mine works very well and without issue. for those who ARE having problems, i suspect a driver or firmware update will resolve the issue. i purchased my macbook at a local brick-and-mortar, solely because i wanted to make sure i could exchange it immediately if i had wireless problems. it would have been a bit cheaper (i.e. no tax) had i purchased it through newegg.
- memory, cpu, and battery are non-upgradeable/non-replaceable. this is kind of a big deal. particularly with the battery. batteries should be replaceable, period.
- glossy display (though almost all ultrabooks currently use glossy displays)

Other Thoughts: macs are known for running a bit hot. some people think that 80'C to 90'C is just fine but if you investigate the overclocking community - a demographic with substantial understanding/experience of thermals and longevity - you will discover those temperatures are considered less than optimal. however, i was able to reduce my max temps by about 10'C through the use of third party fan control software.

the speakers are okay, but most people don't buy notebooks this size for their speakers. still, playing with the equalizer in itunes can make the audio quite pleasant.

i am neither a fanboy nor hater of apple or microsoft. i do find some apple users a bit too smug given their general lack of tech-prowess (though this could be said for some windows and linux users, as well). regardless of your preference, this laptop is the best bang for your buck. hate OSX? no problem - even after the additional costs of a windows OS purchase, this laptop is still cheaper than the competition and well worth the price.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive

Pros: + Screen is beautiful
+ SSD/flash makes it very fast and snappy
+ Haswell GPU performs very well
+ Stays pretty cool and quiet while gaming (for a 13in laptop)
+ Great build quality and feel
+ Runs Parallels like a boss
+ Battery lasts all day

Cons: - Wish it had 1 more USB port (2 thunderbolt ports seems like overkill, but thats just me)

Other Thoughts: I owned the last iteration of the 13in retina and replaced it with this. The big difference in my eyes is the GPU performance, and all the issues I had with the old version are now gone. Could not recommend a better machine.
