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?

usage from ipad and macbook are different, after looking at this new macbook, other mac especially on pro retina look bulky, heavy and not attractive.

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

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.
