Hands on: Apple's new 13-inch MacBook Pro has a lot of bang for the buckYeah, the screen and processor speed seem good.
The RAM is low. The SSD is too small AND slow!
If you want to expand the RAM you have to go BTO which adds 12 days to delivery time.
Configured "correctly" they're changing $1700 for the machine - and you only have to wait around 2 weeks to get it.
I bought one today but I have not opened it, I think I'm going to return it and sit on the money until Apple delivers a entry level machine with 256GB (the bare bare minimum needed to install Mac OS X, some basic productivity programs, a small music library and maybe a small Bootcamp partition.) But on 128 that's nearly impossible.
128GB on a $1300 laptop turned out to be a deal breaker for me, frankly it should be embarrassing to Apple. 128GB SSD with these write speeds cost less than $30 dollars, and a 240GB version is less than $45.
