- Speed and features Seems to solve the sluggishness issues the first version of the 13in rMBP had...no lag issues noticed, and I'm coming from the 15in rMBP.
- Design and form factor No comments
- Battery life Honestly haven't been able to test this yet, but don't see any reason why it wouldn't go at least 7-8 hours on a charge.
- Display No ghosting issues, at least on mine (had one on my 15in rMBP, but it didn't bother me).
- Durability Remains to be seen, but I'm ordering a cover for the top/bottom. Although the unibody is rigid, seems like it will scratch easy.
- Expandability No plans to expand...just waiting for Apple to update the TB display. Rating as good because you can't expand anything internally once purchased.
- Noise Virtually silent. The i7 version may heat up more and cause the fans to spin up, but the i5 version is very quiet.
- Portability (size / weight) The main reason I switched...like the size better than the 15.
