I would ask what you plan to use it for. In general terms, I would say its overpriced and underpowered. Its similar to how the MacBook Air was when first released. Very cool, not a ton of umph, and expensive to a fault. My guess is it will come down to a reasonable price inside 18 months - at which point, like the MacBook Air, it will sell like wild fire. If you are looking for something immediately, you're best bet, comparable to this computer, is a MacBook Air. One big mention- if the Retina screen is very important to you, I would say that would be the only reason to sway you over to buying the new MacBook as the MacBook Air still does not have a Retina screenIs this meaning the new MacBook they just released? Would it be a good buy or not?? I'm asking for suggestions lol. Thanks!
