Most helpful reviews

Jake, Norwich General home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Easily portable, along with a big enough screen to do work as well as watch movies.

SSD makes it unbelievably fast to switch on and off.

The trackpad's gestures make navigating around the operating system and software effortless. I was never a fan of trackpads until now.

This is in addition to a desktop PC, and I now use iCloud ten times more than I did, making that a really useful service.

Good points:
This is a great machine, it's my first Mac so I'm a Switcher. There are some great Apps for the Mac and I was suprized how quickly I got used of it. It takes 15sec to start up from cold including starting the Anti Virus software I put on it. Screen is so sharp it"s amazing. Wish I switched years ago.
Bad points:
These machines are expensive but that aside, really happy with it.

Simon, Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Having been a PC advocate for years I bought this fully expecting to have to install Windows. Pleasantly surprised with OSX and have resisted so far. Machine is fast as lightning to start up and I am yet to run anything on it which challenges it. High buying price is balanced off a bit by better residual selling price than anything with Windows. Build quality is fantastic and the track-pad is the best I have used.
Bad points:
Casing is very easy to mark. Also the design of the casing should probably have had a little update given this is the third or fourth generation. Shows how high apple set the bar that others are only now catching up. Higher res screen would be nice too. Maybe not retina high, but 1080P would be ace.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Design, interface and durability is excellent
Bad points:
Battery life is not more than four hours although Apple claims it up to 7 hours. Also bit more expenses if you compare with Ultra book series of other reliable brands like Sony and HP.
