Excerpt: I just had to review my new Macbook Pro 15.4" retina laptop before I went to bed. My new Macbook pro came shipped to my place today and I was so happy. It is an amazing peace of machinery. It is very well made aluminum body and glass track pad and is pretty light. Not a cheap made plastic laptop like my previous HP. I've used PCs all my life and I have to get used to the new Mac.
Pros: 2 Video Cards Auto Switch, Amazing design, Backlit Keyboard, Extra Long Power Cable, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Powerful, Quality Display, Quiet, Very Fast, Very thin
Cons: I Am So Used To A Pc, No Dvd-rw Internal Drive, Only 2 Usb Connections, Pricey Compared To Pc
Excerpt: Despite it is a 2013 model, it has the compute power that I need for my work. 256 GBs of PCIe-Flash based hard drive may seem a little less, welcome to the cloud Era, you might find yourself not needing that mush of space. I'm satisfied for a powerful product at such price. Most importantly, tax-free when I was buying from CA and get it shipped over from NY. And one more thing, Retina is great.
The hardware is excellent. The retina screen is the best I used ...

Summary: The hardware is excellent. The retina screen is the best I used and the SSD makes the retina Macbook Pro extremely fast. The Mavericks OS and a few packaged programs like iTunes has a few glitches but work well enough.
Summary: Having to retrain myself on everything. I miss Windows XP but it was a power hog and OS X is not. I miss the right click and screen print buttons. Delete is now backspace to just name a few things I don't like about the keyboard. But it is really fast and the screen is amazing!
