Finest laptop on the market!

There are so many things I could say about this, but I will just leave it to ... read more [+]a few important features.
First is the Retina display. It is better than I expected and having owned the last generation mac book pro I wondered if was that great. Well it's not great, its phenomenal! As usual apple doesn't hype a feature without good reason.
Second is the speed.... the speed.... the speed.
Fast is a joke. It's blazing. Keep in mind my last Macbook Pro had an SSD drive also, so it's not just the SSD Drive, its the whole architecture. From CPU to Ram to Video , all components work in harmony to produce an experience that's so far above the PC realm, that PC laptops are not even close to be in competition with this laptop.
Do yourself a favor and if you can afford this laptop and even if you can't (sell something !!!!) get your bucks together and buy it!!!!! close [-]
