i've had mine for a couple of weeks now, and its hands down the best laptop i've ever owned. i'm on the edge of the "want" group, but do just enough software development on it to drift towards "need". waiting two or three times as long for a compile to run wouldn't be the worst thing the world, but working from home, it just doesn't take me that long to get another cuppa. the weight doesn't bother me, its no heavier than my two-laptops-ago laptop, and there are usually a couple of hardback books in my go-bag which weigh just as much. throw in unreal performance, battery life, fans which just never make more than a whisper, a real keyboard and physical escape key again... like i said, best i've ever owned.
but whatever, that's just my 2cp. if you feel you need to bash it to justify your existence in this cosmos, you do you. peace & love, inc.
online backups can take a long time, depending on how fast your uplink is, and how much of it you allow the backup software to use (backblaze has a setting for this, the default is fairly conservative), and how quickly the online service can ingest and squirrel away your data (you think you have bandwidth problems). but after that initial backup, incrementals can be quite quick.
