So far I’m loving it.
The retina monitor (227 pixels/inch) is a huge upgrade.
I REALLY love setting the display to “Larger Text”, making everything larger on screen. Unfortunately some apps don’t fit on to that screen so I switch, now and again, back to the standard retina display.
New this Pro is very snappy.
I paid CDN$1406 (US$1132) including tax after a trade-in, an old computer that barely worked. It’s CDN$1599 new with 256GB flash memory. (Flash costs about $1/GB these days.)
The Yosemite operating system is a big improvement, especially Spotlight search.
Compare Apple laptops. (Jan 2015)
I’m recommending the Pro for power users (video or photo editing, blogging, etc.), the less expensive Air for everyone else.
