Picked up new 15" rMacBook Pro yesterday

I finally had to upgrade from my trusty old 17" i5 macbook pro to a new machine. Spilled milk by my kid into the keyboard on the old macbook pro was making it behave strangely.

I have to say, as a 17" laptop user, this 15" machine is amazing. It's definitely smaller than the 17" AND you can scale the resolution on it up to 1920x1200 if you want to and it looks GREAT. Much warmer and sharper display and the speed is awesome!

I ended up with the 15"/2.6/16GB/768GB configuration and it's an amazing machine.

The only downside to it is the battery life compared to my 17" isn't as great. The battery is about 3/4 the capacity of my old machine but the power and screen are amazing.

Awesome stuff! I wonder if and when Apple will make an 11" retina display.

My 11" MBA is working great but when I replace it it'll be with whatever the smallest retina display MacBook is out at the time!

Congrats! I recently purchased the 13" retina version and couldn't be happier to-date. It doesn't visually "feel" smaller than the 14.5" Dell work machine it's going to replace, either, but does weigh about half as much...heh...heh...
