  Can't put it down,  2013-08-25
By Peter G

My old 2008 Macbook was great in it's day but clearly became time to replace after my youngster accidentally knocked it off the counter. This model rose to the top of my list, ahead of the Macbook Air models, because it has the Retina screen (I do a lot of photography and want the resolution for "tethered" shooting with Capture One Pro) and I didn't want to pay for the i7 processor (this i5 is plenty fast). When it went on sale, it was a no brainer.

What's great is that the internal SSD speed is silent, fast and runs much cooler. I can let it sit on my lap and not feel the need to insert a pillow between it and my thighs. Battery life seems great though I can't really report an exact figure here because I have not pushed it to the limit.

Resolution is just what I'd expected. I can ScreenShare an older desktop running a 30" high res Cinema display and actually read the screen. Photography looks fantastic.

In the end it's better than I'd hoped for. If you are worried about battery life, or ultimate speed, the next iteration of these machines (Fall 2013) should have more of both, but for me, this fit the bill precisely.
