Pros Battery life
Usb on both sides (For a right handed mouse)
It is light!
Cons Price (It went down to a more affordable $1499)
Base storage (Nothing a hard drive can't fix)
Summary Okay... I admite there is some flaws, everything has flaws, but it is nothing that you cannot fix. A simple hard drive or a flash drive does make the problem go away. If only the terabyte flash drive was cheap! If you are looking for a work computer for school or work this is perfect. Gamers find it less appealing, but they still like the computer for non-gaming tasks. It is also a great computer for the movie industry because of it's display and features. It does look kind of look like a macbook air, but I like the look. It is sharp, and unlike my old computers has never over heated (Don't take my word, I have not played and heavy duty games or programs yet, but I bet it can easily handle it). Overall an amazing computer.
Pros Display (Of course)
Cons Pretty expensive... okay... really really really really expensive.
Summary I can run as many applications as I want with no drops in performance. I love the track pad gestures and dictation. Screen and speakers are great for media, Also love AirPlay. If you can afford it, it is well worth it if you need to run many intense applications. Its also my first Apple computer, and it has exceeded all of my expectations.
Pros Love the 6 hour battery life. Everyone else at Starbucks is scrambling to find power outlets. I don't even bring my power adapter with me anymore.
SSD is very fast.
Screen is absolutely amazing. Crisp text with zero pixelation. Awesome machine.
Cons Only two USB 3.0 ports. Would like one more.
Summary Best machine I've ever owned. The combination of ultra fast performance, 6 hour battery life, and amazingly sharp and clear screen can't be beat.
Pros USB port on both sides of the computer (did not have this on my old one).
Retina is really nice.
Cons Not enough GB! (Less than my old white MacBook, which means i could not back up all my documents) I do not understand how this computer can be called a MacBook "PRO"!
Way too heavy for not having a CD player
Way too pricy for what it's worth!
Summary I have only had troubles with this computer since I first opened its package.
I only regret buying because I have to use it everyday and when I look at it, it just reminds me of everything I have had to go through.
I would have never thought i would miss my old white MacBook.
There are more CONS than PROS, just remember not to buy this computer, you would be better off with a MacBook Air!
Pros This product offers a superb display. No questions asked, the retina lineup is leading the industry of laptop displays at the moment. It offers performance of high caliber and is great for anyone who wants to get work done, in a multiple locations.
Cons Unfortunately this device is expensive and is possible only suited towards the business market as using high end aesthetically pleasing MacBooks give a better impression to their clients. The 13 inch model may feel a bit small at times.
Summary In conclusion we see that this is a great product released from Apple, however it comes at a premium. Some would argue that it's too big, but that is what you have to pay to be on the Apple float. The laptop is reasonably customisable (at purchase) in the way you can upgrade RAM and SSD sizes. However unfortunately, like most new Apple products the ability to customise it after being built is becoming ever increasingly difficult or expensive.
In conclusion we see that this product once customised to tailor your requirements, is a great device. However it's price would put many people off. However, lets not judge how good a product is just on its price, lets judge it on what it actually is. If your buying a Mac in itself, you clearly have spare cash in your pockets. Overall another great product to join the Mac line-up.
