New MacBook Pro Retina

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I got a new MacBook Pro Retina 13" yesterday.

 

The transfer via Migration Assistant was awesome. In many ways, it was almost too awesome - CrashPlan assumed it was the same computer, in fact. :)

 

It's come a long way. Brilliant way to move to a new computer.

Excellent! Curious to know how battery life is from an actual user.

I don't use the battery a lot. Sometimes I unplug it sitting at home just so it's not always powered, but I use the cord 80% of the time or more.

My sister bought a new 13" Air a few weeks ago. Her old MacBook was backed up to a Time Capsule and Migration Assistant took 3 hours or so over wi-fi to do everything. Very hands-off and impressive process.

VERY nice touch that Time Machine on the new Air recognizes the old backups and gives you the option to simply continue on with those as your back history.


The battery in my 15" Pro is dying (I'm getting a "Service Battery" warning), to the point where I only get about 45 minutes of internet browsing on a full charge. Going to have to replace that soon.

I'd like to replace the whole thing in about a year, but I really like the way mine is setup (250GB main SSD, replaced my optical drive with a 1TB HDD).

Bah. I should have named my MacBook Pro Wall-E. I didn't even think of it until now.
