Overall: Happy to have my first mac in hand...extremely thankful to flipkart for providing nice discount and 0%EMI. Since my place is not serviceable , shipped to my brother@chennai and he then brought it to me.
Now..about this silver beauty...great first mac for beginners like me. I am a long time user of both iPad & iPhone . But was sticking to windows7 for quite a while. My decision to switch is in no way bad. Now with mountain lion , mac has an iPad tinge to some apps. With iCloud I got everything I want in all my devices..that's simply great..photos I take with iPad or iPhone appear in photo stream of iPhoto and I can give nice touches and sync them back.
I haven't purchased any iWork apps until now..planning to get pages and keynote soon.
About the performance , mac wins hands down. It switches on and off within 5 sec..due to flash memory. Navigating within the OS and within the apps using the touchpad is simple and elegant. Gestures are a joy to perform.. I purchased a Magic Mouse also. But I feel touchpad is slightly better. Preview app can open most of the documents.
I tried to play 1080p video and it played well.(QuickTime player)
Speakers are good for average users..music lovers should get headphones or external speakers.
Skype, chrome, adobe reader, vlc player etc are some of the apps I downloaded and installed..everything just work well.
And battery back up is awesome- on full charge, it lasted 8 hours even with continuous Internet usage.
I would recommend this ultra portable mac to all first timers and those looking for a carry around laptop(who doesn't want a tablet)
Once again thanks to flipkart.
