    I owned the original 2015 MacBook and it was a good little computer, but frequently stuttered and got bogged down a lot. Even just browsing the web it was not a smooth experience and would get hot while using. This new model is substantially better than the 2015 version. Programs open fast, web browsing is great, battery life is great and the revised keyboard is fantastic to type on. I don't know exactly what Apple changed with the keyboard but this is more like typing on a MacBook Pro now and not quite like the flat original keys of the 2015 MacBook. I have not done any video conversion yet so I have no opinion on the processing speed. I debated between this and the new MacBook Pro for the same price; since Apple cut the base Pro to 128GB, the 12" MacBook is now the better deal in my opinion.

    Thin, fast, powerful enough

    I have always had a MacBook Pro and now that I've finished grad school and was needing a new computer, didn't need the Pro capabilities (especially with the Pro price tag). I was between the MacBook Air and new MacBook. I think the new MacBook will get more future support (possibly supplant the Air). It runs fast, is ultralight, and definitely powerful enough for what I need. The only downside is the need for an adapter to input USB, HDMI, etc into the USB-C port.

    The only reason why I returned this Macbook is so that I could order one with 16GB of RAM. If you get this from Best Buy, save money and get an open-box item. This is the most portable laptop that you will ever own and since it's so portable you will most likely take it with you more places than you would if you had a larger one. I wouldn't get this as a main computer if you're heavy user but I see this as an iPad replacement (due to being so portable).

    Impossibly thin, unendingly portable

    If you have not held the new MacBook in hand, it is almost impossible to think how a computer can be so light and so thin. In some ways, it almost seems like an iPad with a clamshell keyboard attached to it. To make space for the small form factor, many 'normal' features had to be removed: no CD drive, no USB ports (save for the USB-C charging port) and no HDMI port. This computer was truly designed to be ultra portable and is not peripheral feature heavy. While I was looking for a computer that is easy to tote around, this could be a reason to consider a different model for some users. Since I was switching from a MacBook Pro, I found that the keys (like the new Magic keyboard) are more shallow and take some getting used to. This makes for a small learning curve, but overall it is a non-issue. The loss of some factors of convenience (no USB drive, etc) are more than balanced with the impossibly thin design of the new MacBook. It almost seems ridiculous when you look at other larger laptops after using this computer. Keep in mind, if you don't already have one you will need a bluetooth mouse, etc to get the job done. More than just a cosmetic choice for the MacBook is the aluminum shell. I opted for the gold finish, which looks stunning. Since the laptop is so light and thin, the aluminum makes it feel like the construction is sturdy and not flimsy. Overall I am very happy with the computer. I would urge that anyone considering the device thinks long and hard about the need to use peripherals and if they can live without USB/ HDMI ports and a DVD drive natively built in to their laptop.

    I have wanted a MacBook 12in since it first came out. I have had a MacBook Pro 15in since 2012. I wanted something smaller. This MacBook is small and lightweight enough to carry around. Battery really does last a long time. It was easy to set up. I returned it only to exchange for one with more storage. I may not need so much, but I would rather have too much than not enough. Apple all the way!
