Marco Arment on The New Macbook

The MacBook just looks and feels like the obvious, no-brainer choice for a small Mac. That’s why people buy it. That’s why I bought it. I loved it before I bought it. I love looking at it and picking it up.

I just hate using it.

I hate typing on it, I hate the trackpad, it’s slower than I expected, the screen is noticeably blurry from non-native scaling to get reasonable screen space, and I don’t even find it very comfortable to use in my lap because it’s toosmall.

I hate returning things, but I’m returning this.

I played around with one at a local Best Buy the other day and almost immediately I could tell it’s a slow machine, but if web browsing and email is your thing, it’s a great companion.
