1. Design. The best Macbook I have ever owned. Seems solid, well built and functionality is perfect.
2. Battery life is crazy. And charging times are excellent.
3. Trackpad: perfect! Responsive and exactly the right size.
4. Screen. You have to see Mavericks in all its Retina screen glory to really appreciate it. All normal screen immediately seems poor in comparison. The single most important reason for upgrading for me, and well worth it.
5. Performance. For general use it seems crazy fast. No more spinning beach ball. And the fan never kicks in in normal use, so most of the time its completely silent. Most other laptops seem sluggish in comparison.
6. OSX: The best operative system ever! Full stop. Having used this for almost a year now, I cant see what they could possibly improve. Ok, the App Store app needs some speed improvement, but other than that its perfect.

Conclusion: This is the fist time I have been completely blown away by a computer. I mean, it's the perfect size, has extraordinary battery life and performance, and the best looking screen ever on a notebook. Ok, it's a tad expensive, but if you have the cash, you will not be disappointed!
