    It is an amazing piece of hardware. The trackpad is just fantastic. And on top of that, this is the only system on which you can legally have OS X, Windows and Ubuntu in a triple boot setup. Awesome stuff.

    Just 2 gripes though!

    1. It gets HOT. Very very HOT when you stretch it to its limits. The aluminium construction doesn't help either.

    2. Next, when you run other OSes thanks to Apple's BIOS emulator, you can use only discrete graphics as Apple doesn't show the integrated graphics in the BIOS. This translates to poor battery life in non OS X setups.

    Still, a brilliant laptop and I'm fully satisfied.
