Brian , Rotherham General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Real quality design and build. OS X is an excellent operating system which puts Windows 8 to shame. Runs smoothly and efficiently for hours. Battery life excellent even with a bright screen 5+ hours (up to 7 with a more economical setting). Charges quickly. Lots of apps available in AppStore. Other software available to help your windows files work on Mac.
Bad points:
Does not wirelessly link to my smart sony TV, You need to use an Apple TV box. No HDMI port (on this version). I dont personally like some packaged software such as iPhoto (it re-creates your photo collection and doubles size of disk space used).

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Looks great. Excellent screen, multi-touch works brilliant. Longer battery life than most other laptops. Backlit keyboard is handy too.
Bad points:
It is expensive and cheaper windows laptops will do 99% of the same job for a 1/3rd of the cost. Battery life is very good but falls short of stated times.
Takes a bit of getting used to if switching from Windows.

Ebbe, Northamptonshire Often on the move

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Fast
Bad points:
When moving from Windows to Apple Mac you have to be prepared for much trouble and time wasting. I have had problems with TimeFace, Skype, Mail boxes etc. all problems which I had to go to Apple shop to get sortet. Not of my making, but something with the computer which was not right. Many companies I deal with, have not got Apple programs, so I have to carry on with the old computer for banking abroad, international on-line chess playing. So all is not rosy, but at the end it may turn up all right. In the meantime I have to consult with Apple, which is time consuming and expensive.
