If not mistaken the indicative price was RM4,4xx previously now up to RM4,769 after GST. And I don't think I can get used to having just one port for everything so I'll skip biggrin.gif

What's nice about this Macbook is that you get 256GB storage. Pay the same amount for the latest Macbook Pro and you only get 128GB storage! biggrin.gif

But you get more features, more ports, much better performance with only the sacrifice of portability.

Depend on personal usage, some may opt for Macbook Pro lowest model instead of this new Macbook.
I was considering to get this Macbook at first but end up ordering the Macbook Pro, as I feel too many compromises I'll need to make do for this Macbook. With the price we need to pay, it's not worth it (to me at least).

Thing is you're not only sacrificing portability, but you're sacrificing storage space - by half! biggrin.gif

But that said if I had to make a choice I'd probably choose the same as you. I can already picture it in my mind on how annoyed I would be coz of the lack of ports.

Pricing is the main issue here, based on internal news seems like Apple will charge USD250 for CPU upgrade to 5Y71 1.3GHz which is pure profit for Apple as Intel charges the same price for all Core M doh.gif mad.gif

I do understand the need to make the macbook epic thin but what's another additional port going to add to the thickness? Hehehe...

So if you have an iPad Air or iPad Air 2 with a Bluetooth keyboard, would you still go for a 12" MacBook, or would you be better off with a 13" Air or Pro?

Yea, I read a number of reviews saying the keyboard needs some getting used to and also one reviewer mentioned that she feels that her wrists tire faster using the new Macbook compared to her current MBA...

Depending on usage. If you comfortable with using it for surfing, minor graphic editing, office work and stuff, it ok. But if you're into video editing like Final Cut Pro X or do web design, apps programming or Motion/After Effects stuff, then Pro is the way to go smile.gif

Hmm, first of all you will need at least 50gb space to dual boots. 2nd, with 4gb ram it's quite okay, but if can upgrade the ram smile.gif

No idea about Windows 8, but for Windows 7, the minimum is 25GB (assuming you disable hibernation, you don't install too many programs and updates, and you set virtual memory to 0). But if you really need Windows on your Mac, 256GB is recommended.

As for the RAM, 4GB is OK based on your usage.

Reviews online mentioning that its quite a big jump on the juices from 1.1ghz to 1.2ghz. No review yet on the 1.3ghz as its a built to order. Assuming the jump from 1.1ghz to 1.2ghz (roughly producing the same juices as the MB air 2014 model), i expect quite a big jump if u take the 1.3ghz.

I feel that i should upgrade the essentials e.g. hard disk & processor as i am gonna have this last for easily another 5-6 years like my current MBP.. New macs does not allow any upgrades, unlike previous gen whereby we can upgrade the ram & hdd ourselves. I don't want my machine to be rendered outdates & useless in 3 years time and having to spend another RM5-6k on another machine just because i wanted to save the extra RM1k now. Having said that, its your choice bro smile.gif

benchmark itself cant really tell the whole story. Anandtech already review on Core M, temperature and OEM play an important role on Core M performance. nod.gif

For example, the 1.1Ghz might have higher performance than 1.2Ghz model if the 1.1Ghz run in cold weather (like snow) and the 1.2Ghz in hot weather (malaysia anyone?). Another thing to consider is if the Macbook already running worm before benchmark? If so then the score will be lower due to the same thermal reason. nod.gif

unless there is a 2 system running in exact condition, it is still hard to judge for now if it is worth it (RM810 for the upgrade). I am waiting for Anandtech for Macbook review based on 2 models before i pull the trigger laugh.gif

No idea about Windows 8, but for Windows 7, the minimum is 25GB (assuming you disable hibernation, you don't install too many programs and updates, and you set virtual memory to 0). But if you really need Windows on your Mac, 256GB is recommended.

As for the RAM, 4GB is OK based on your usage.

spot on , my MBA HDD is 128 gb - split it between OS Yosemite & Windows 7 , windows 7 almost consume the other half barely left me with 3-5 gb to spare thus 256 gb with SD card support is recommend.

Also , had experienced windows 8 with 4gb MBA , doesnt work well as it occupied mostly of RAM usage .

Ya, quite disappointed on the review, missed out most important questions. shakehead.gif

1. Like how is it 1.1GHz compared with 1.3GHz (performance, battery life etc)
2. How if compared to 2015 model (mostly in review are 2014 and older)
3. SSD compared with PCIe SSD in 2015 model

your point is right, that why i think upgraded to 1.3-2.9 using core m 5y71 is essential becoz i assume this mac will be use more than 5 years. And about SSD storage i think 256 is enough coz can transfer it to other portable HDD

just look at ifixit

https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/Retina+Macb...+Teardown/39841

look like this macbook using toshiba SLC

try search what difference between MLC vs SLC and got this

The main characteristic of MLC flash is its low price, but it suffers from higher wear rates and lower write performance compared with single-level cell (SLC) technology. SLC is faster and much more reliable -- but also more expensive -- and is featured in the best-performing storage arrays.

This would be quite a cool item especially if Apple charges RM299 or an adapter. What more that this comes in an array of ports e.g. ethernet, uSB 3.0 & etc..

Only thing is, does the dock's USB-c support charging of the MB? Since its stated there as data only.

Thanks

Hi all, still waiting for my credit card to be charged. I ordered the Space Grey. Actually using a late 2013 Retina MacBook Pro which is performing beautifully but I just can't get over the form factor and new colours of the new MB. So, current MBP will go to the wife :-)

no point buy a Macbook and upgraded it. Assume the mac can lasts for 5 years, bu we look at 5 years ago, that time iphone 4 was launched now people using iphone 6+, there is a huge improvements throughout the period, for me i rather spend money on standard spec and upgrade it in 2-3 years time

the price point is a pinchy subjective matter.
many will wonder why pay xxxx for MB when u can pay same or less and get MBA/rMBP.
but the thing is, the two products, MB/MBA & rMbp are meant for different users.
those in need of power and substance, shud opt for the latter and push the hardware to the limit.
the MB/MBA is more of style and comfort machine. no power to shout about but all the beauty in the world to brag about.
essentially u are paying for better hardware in the big boys while paying for better engineering in the beauty products.

Base model MBA is equivalent to top end macbook model.
Top end MBA which costs about the same as base model MB will get you some crazy performance. (I have to assume that since its using an i7)
So do you want to sacrifice the display and looks for performance or do you want swag?

the Geekbench 32bit OSX run result seems a bit wider range. If taking 64bit as a reference:

1.1GHz SC ~2400; MC ~4600
1.2GHz SC ~2550; MC ~5200
1.3GHz SC ~2800; MC ~5500

2.7GHz rMBP SC ~3200; MC ~6900
2.9GHz rMBP SC ~3400; MC ~7200
2.2GHz MBA SC ~3150; MC ~6700


For the battery size of 39.7Whr, and 50% lighter than rMBP, not bad at all cool2.gif
Single-core score wasnt so bad at all for 1.3GHz model.

I think Malaysians in general tend to overanalyse, partially because we always want the best but pay the least. laugh.gif

I think it is quite obvious. The price gap between the MB12/MBA13/rMBP13 is very similar. They are all around 10% between each other. Performance wise, MBA13 and rMBP13 is similar while the MB is about 30% less processing power.

MB - Lightest, Can recharge from powerbank/powered usb, decent battery life, retina screen, no fan (cooler and less one component to fail)
MBA - Light, Extra long battery life, better processing power, no retina screen
rMBP - Retina Screen, decent battery life, better processing power.

I think it is quite obvious a person should know which model they need most. I like MB's retina screen and even smaller charger (compared to MBA/rMBP).

All three fall under different market segment although people tend to compare because they are sized quite similarly.

I recently purchased a 1.2/8gb/512GB MB and I'm coming from a 15" rMBP 2012 because 3 years of lunging the 15" around is enough.

Tried everything. Reset PRAM. Transparency reduction. Increase contrast. Every resolutions.

In the end updated to 10.10.4 public preview, helps quite a bit especially for Safari. But still, the UX is not what I expected coming from MBA. Yosemite could use a lot of optimisation. But anyway, it is quite subjective, I have always been anal about UI responsiveness. biggrin.gif

Singapore.
When I first tested it in San Francisco during launch, it didn't feel like that. I wonder if the demo units were 1.3ghz units.
Sigh, now it's really start to get on my nerve because otherwise it's a dream machine.
Gonna check out the Apple Store later to see if their demo units behave the same.
Going to complain or ask for a refund lol.

Yeap. Slight education discount available
If all you need in college is Microsoft words, go ahead.
And get a dock. Unless internet connectivity increases by hundred fold, cloud storage is still troublesome in Malaysia.

Those of you who are still waiting for Apple to ship the MacBook to you, just cancel it. I just got mine today at Machines MidValley. They have all the colors available.
