  • Speed and features Would have like a quad core option, but it is fast enough. good
  • Design and form factor The new thinner design doesn't dig into your wrist when you type. great!
  • Battery life I am getting almost a full day of use right now. 6 hours+. great!
  • Display The display is amazing. great!
  • Durability Aluminum case holds up to wear quite well. great!
  • Expandability With 2 thunderbolt and 2 USB 3 ports you can upgrade whatever you need. RAM and Disk are not upgradable, but you are warned about this when you purchase. good
  • Noise Pretty much silent, unless you are compiling code or open a web page with Flash. great!
  • Portability (size / weight) Almost as small and light as an Air, but with noticeably better performance and screen. great!

Honestly, this could have been a beast laptop, but Apple should have included a discrete GPU. A 640M/650M would have been great for this laptop.

I completely agree. Discrete GPU and a quad core i7 would have been amazing.
