    Yep, got the latest Macbook Pro and love it.

    Use my top spec iMac when I need a bit of grunt, but love the Macbook.

    Battery lasts forever and with Handoff I can go from device to device (iPhone & iPad too, I'm a proper Applehead lol).

    My nipper has an iMac, he lives on it. I find windows easier to use especially when designing leaflets etc.

    I wanted a Mac as apparently they have excellent software for making videos. As I want to make some professional videos for www.

    Wouldn't mind an iMac tho

    I don't like macs personally, but the pro does look nice. If you like their software then its all good and best thing is you don't generally get virus's etc like on windows! My mate swears by them. I swear at them :D

    Would highly recommend! For years I resisted, but now I use a Macbook Pro and Macbook Air, I'd never buy (or use if possible) a PC!

    Depending on what you're needing it for, it might be worth getting an Air. Still powerful enough for most jobs, cheaper and so light!

    I agree the air looks and feels fab but the MBP will suit my needs better.

    I have a drone arriving and what to make some crash videos hahahahah.
