I forgot to comment on it being the first fanless Macbook. That's great! I hate fans, can't stand 'em at all, i like my personal devices to be 100% silent.
And two pounds is a real nice weight too for a laptop.
It's good that Apple is keeping laptop separate from tablet. If you want the best laptop, buy a Macbook, if you want the best tablet, buy an iPad.
This new Macbook is sexy, and sex sells.
People who like and buy Surface Pros are probably eunuchs.
