Detailed review
This machine replaced a 2008 Mac Pro and I am very satisfied so far. Speed is fantastic and I cannot get over the screen. It is almost to big, if that is possible.

Speed: The model I chose has a 3TB Fusion Drive in it and I am loving the start up speed as well as in other large applications.

Screen: The screen, for being the same screen as the previous model, is simply stunning. Watching a movie full screen looks better than my HD television.

SD Reader: I wish the SD reader was more easily accessible from the front of the machine. This begs for some sort of extender.
DVD: Yes, there is no DVD drive in this model but for my needs I had not needed one in more than a year. If I do happen to need one there is the SuperDrive option.
