    Writing this from my new MacBook pro 15" retina. This thing is amazing! I have been manually scrolling by grabbing the bar for 3-4 years because the little scroller on my old laptop broke, so this trackpad is incredible :D

    Congrat bro!
    yeah, the trackpad is incredilbe
    you only need a magic mouse for design works, the trackpad works well for all the rest
    still stick with my MBP 13 from 2009, it's running quite slow now on 10.8.4
    will upgrade to MBP 15" Retina soon
    cheers,

    ~$2300 with tax and shipping. It's definitely a tax write off so it's worth it :)

    I have checked its specs and it is really amazing. What's the battery timing?

    If you mean battery life, it's supposed to be 7+ hours or something, I personally work with it plugged in all the time, so I won't be able to verify that :p

    Have they fixed the burn-in issues on the retina display yet? If I leave facebook/youtube/etc open for more than a minute the image burns into the display slightly.

    Congrats! Mac OS X is great, however the price is really the reason for me not to purchase another mac and go for a custom built pc. Why did you pick mac over windows? Maybe you can convince me..

    I'm going to say yes, everything about this computer is smoother and slicker.

    Thats what my Win7 laptop's for!


    I appreciate the kudos from everyone, I got my start here at BHW so I owe it all to you guys :)
