Pros: Very productive laptop. Quiet, light and the battery lasts an exceptionally long time. Able to run multiple VMs at once, "get the 16 gig mem version for that". Outstanding virus protection on it's own. I have no virus protection... LOL. Works with my existing monitors, so no need to go out and buy Apple's $1000 monitors. Everything I have so far is 100% compatible with Mac.
Other Thoughts: If you work from home like I do on this thing, By or at least hook it up to your external monitor and use that. Save your retina display...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's solid state. When it works it's great.
Cons: Too bad I can't keep it working... Seems like there is some quality control issues going on here. I am not the only one with these problems. Also, I had to jump through hoops to even get the thing to mount up in windows 7. See other thoughts and reply if you had to do these steps as well. I sent the first drive back for an RMA.
Other Thoughts: OK. So here is what I actually had to do to get a broken SSD to be recognized in windows 7...
Keep in mind I don't recommend these steps below. Just send the thing back it's broken... But if you want to do it just to say you did it, follow my ultra-cool steps below.
When starting up 7 installation and your newly purchased SSD is not there, select the option to repair. Basically get to the command prompt in the repair utility. Do the following...
select disk 0 (Mine was 0)
clean (destroys any partitions-you will lose any and all data)
create partition primary align=1024 (Yeah funny huh)
active (Activating the partition)
format fs=ntfs quick (Or remove the quick option if you have no life)
Now your drive will be visible to windows 7 installation...
too bad it is going to disappear randomly anyways...
Now go ahead and start your RMA process, because your SSD is still cr@p...
