TJ Luoma went in to the Apple Store to buy a new MacBook Pro and ended up walking out with a 12" Retina MacBook. He loves it. One of the most interesting parts is that he prefers the MacBook's low-travel keyboard. I think keyboards are a personal thing, like the firmness of a mattress. I've grown accustomed to my MacBook's keyboard and don't think about it much. However, I still prefer the more conventional keyboard on my iMac. Otherwise, I'd agree with TJ across the board. The 12" MacBook is powerful enough for what I do and when you have a computer this light, you can easily take it about anywhere.
