I'm excited. I've got a 2010 MBP that has been wonderful, but it is starting to feel the strain of new softwares. The specs look like a major leap forward and, honestly, barring some world shattering new tech (quantum desktops?), should last me for a while.

Silent, tiny, cool, expandable, super affordable price too, apple is winning right now

It is over the top awesome ! Video is the next wave of popular digital media. Meaning there is a growing prosumer market. As 4K seems to be the new standard coming down the line Apple built a machine that will endure for at least the next few years. This machine is expensive, but not over the top expensive (cheaper than a 5D MKIII)
