Going to buy one, never had a mac before
Previously had dell xps, the older version. Really enjoyed the lightweight, didn't like the lack of ports - but got used to it.
I want a decent screen, lightweight, no fan, performant enough for dev work/movies/surfing. this ticks the boxes. The core m is actually a decent processor, check out the anand tech article which goes in depth. I will only ever use the macbook for surfing/watching movies/development. The cost is comparable to other laptops with similar spec. Except for the asus zenbook ux305, which is tempting. But I want to try some apple dev for shiggles.
Never had a an apple before, not a fanbois.
