Apple’s early 2015 13″ MacBook Pro with Force Touch trackpad is ideal for me

I have been using Apple MacBook Pro 13″ early 2011 model since late 2011; and I have been enjoying using it daily more than any other laptop computers that I’ve used: brands like Dell, Sony, Toshiba, NEC, HP.  Unless work related requirements demand, I will continue to purchase Apple MacBook Pro for my future computer needs.  Apple puts the hardware and software together nicely, thus I feel more natural when using the Apple Mac than any other Windows computers.

I quote some points from the following quoted article titled “Review: Apple’s early 2015 13″ MacBook Pro with Force Touch trackpad” By Sam Oliver, Friday, March 20, 2015, 09:08 pm PT (12:08 am ET) here.  The entire article is on this web page: http://appleinsider.com/articles/15/03/21/review-apples-early-2015-13-macbook-pro-with-force-touch-trackpad.

. 3.48-pound frame

. 2,560-pixel-by-1,600-pixel Retina display

. The Force Touch trackpad doesn’t move [meaning: pressing down for the click and up to the original position], and its haptic feedback mechanism won’t respond until you turn the machine on.

. a 2.7-gigahertz dual-core version of Intel’s Broadwell Core i5, 8 gigabytes of 1866-megahertz RAM, and a 128-gigabyte PCIe-based solid state drive ($1,299); Each of these parts is configurable upward, maxing out at a 3.1-gigahertz dual-core i7, 16 gigabytes of RAM, and a 1-terabyte solid state drive ($2,699)

. Battery: Apple’s word on the rated 12 hours of power for iTunes movie playback

. CPU: Intel’s new Broadwell architecture

. LPDDR3 RAM; LPDDR3 is an ultra-low-power, architecturally divergent variant that was originally designed for use in smartphones and tablets.

. A force-sensing trackpad provides haptic feedback to the fingers.

  1. My test Reply posting: I find this specifications regarding its connectivity that requires my attention: “the New MacBook gets a radical new physical design (it’s super-slim; it has an edge-to-edge keyboard and a new trackpad; and, most disconcertingly, it has only two ports: headphone on one side and a universal USB Type C port on the other, which will have to handle power charging and connecting to any peripherals)”.
