what are you on about? to me, the aesthetics are fine for the ideapad. have you ever heard of preferences? i think macbooks are ok looking, but they aren't the apex design for me, primarily due to its clinical asceticism. at least with the ideapad you can choose different colors. sorry if this makes you so defensive that you have to call me recluse.

>>45348795
you can't even defend that claim so why even bring it up? i've used both, literally side to side. both are OK. if anything i like the ideapad's keyboard more so due to the shape of the keys. OS wise i'm fine with both. couldn't care less. the only gripe i have is that the vent is on the side. other than that, it has a nice solid feel and the hinge is just as good, and the lid closes flawlessly. there's no jitter at all.
>inb4 hurr ur a neckbeard because you aren't perversely adhering to popular opinion.

seriously i just don't dig the macbook pro that much. it's sleek, but not by a huger margin with the ideapad.

means nothing if you aren't sitting at a silly angle from your laptop. color accuracy is fine too. again i compared them and i am aware that retina is better. it's just not significantly so unless you have the content to justify it, and on a laptop with integrated graphics i highly doubt it would ever come to that. even 4k consumer content is rare, but the idea of editing 4k would be absurd.

>>45348889
if it takes you hours to hackintosh maybe you should stick to chromebooks pal.
>>
>>45348896
what? the clickpad is just like the macbook pro's and felt fine. if you're just ripping on both w/e but it's not inferior in anyway whatsoever with regards to the depth it presses in and how sleek it feels.
>>
>>45348891
You don't need 4k content to enjoy a high resolution display. 2560x1600 is great when used in HiDPI mode. Text and icons look sharper.
>>
>>45348897
It's quick installing the hackintosh on your PC. But you spend hours tinkering shit after installing to make sure everything works. Updating it also isn't dependable.

You will notice color shifting even at a "normal" viewing angle on a TN screen.
http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/viewing_angle.php#angleGrey
If you can't see the difference between the picture of that image on a TN vs an IPS screen then you are either blind or bullshitting.
>>
>>45348998
again those are things that don't really make it a bad laptop because it can be calibrated with a fair amount of ease if you know what you're doing. and i'm not bullshitting. the color was not significantly different between the two and they were on next to each other. what more can i say? the only difference was brightness really.
>>
>>45349032
There is no way to "calibrate" a display to make up for a difference in colour shifting. I guess you must just be blind then.
>>
>>45348831
This thing tries so hard to be a Macbook pro but will never because the trackpad is complete garbage on Windows. Enjoy your lenovo though.
>>
>>45348993
This. OP i'm pretty sure it's going to be a computer.
>>
I have the 2.3Ghz and I love it. Battery last me all day programming (not gaming obviously). The screen is pretty good, the "retina" is beautiful, key board is slightly different than previous models, so if your upgrading, expect that, i like it, its a lot more concise, similar to typing on a mechanical(similar, not exactly). overall for a workstation I don't think it gets any better, I find myself only going to my desktop for gaming now, because my laptop can handle everything I throw at it short of the most demanding of games. 10/10 would buy again

>similar to typing on a mechanical(similar, not exactly)
Utter bullshit, there is no travel distance, no weight and you have to bottom out to register since the key just depresses all the way when you tap it below half height.

Typing on a Macbook definitely does not feel like typing on a mechanical, nowhere close, it feels like those cheap $20 microsoft keyboards.
>>
>>45348677
Expect a great laptop m8. I have the same one. Works flawlessly for everyday tasks, programming, muh games.

I'm in the same situation, OP. I'm thinking of picking up a Macbook Pro 13 in but unsure about CPU and SSD storage. I keep most of my docs on dropbox so I can access them anywhere. I'd like to spend as much as I need to as opposed to splurging on an i7 or 512 gb of SSD storage.

I'm currently using an old hp pavilion dv4 laptop. 12 in and 1280x800 res with Ubuntu running on top of it. It's a choice to use and I would love a proper trackpad these days.

I have the exact same laptop and I have to use that shit tier kind of keyboard at work, so i have no idea where your getting your ideas from but you should probably have your macbook looked at if it feels like that..

pros:

well functioning touchpad that makes me hate all other touchpads

can do my work outside because display is bright enough.

relatively accurate color, considering the mobile nature of the panel.

OS X jus werks for the most part. Unix like nature means it isn't completely useless like Windows.

battery life is generally pretty good, even with moderate loads.

cons:

LG panel seems to have yellowish tint during the day. At night in a darkish room the panel seems more reddish.

The LG panel has a poor response time and text and picture will look look like a blurry mess when scrolling. However, playing video games like TF2, this inherent slowness isn't all that horrible.

external mouses seem to act funny in OS X. Even with acceleration disabled they don't seem as accurate. X11 seems to be better at this than Quartz.

Proprietary PCIe SSD means you'll get retardedly high iowaits on Linux. It's fucking stupid how long it can take to open things like firefox because of this.

out of room...cont later.

>>
>>45348891
>it's irrelevant to me and my personal usage, therefore it shouldn't be used in any argument comparing the two ever
>>
>>45349506
cons (cont):

broadcom wireless means using it with linux will be a bitch. All nonfree drivers are pretty much shit on linux and broadcom is no exception.

the cost of the machine is ridicoulos. I paid over $1400 for mine.

overall it's a mixed bag. If you like Linux, avoid this thing like the plague. It's too much of a hassle to get decent performance out of the thing and makes you wonder why apple charges $600 for the SSD when it runs like complete shit in Linux.

If you don't care and expect 200+PPI displays with color accuracy, decent performance (note I'm talking about he 13 inch one), battery and don't mind spending the money, then this laptop is great.

I've got a couple questions myself.

Aside from the screen, what are the advantages of getting a rMBP over a MBA?

How are TextEdit and iPages for writing? Does their spellchecker support multiple languages?

>>45351345

I'd love to know this as well

>>45348677
The best laptop in production.
>>
>>45351362
Got any anecdotal evidence?
>>
>>45349506
>>45349568
I have a late 2013 model 15 inch rMBP running arch Linux. I agree with you on pretty much all of this stuff except the SSD. For me, its really fast in Linux and slow as shit in OSX. It literally takes vlc or QuickTime like 15 seconds to open a 500ish MB video, but in Linux its instant. Never notice any lag in Firefox either.

The broadcom chip is definitely a bitch though. Broadcom wl-dkms is the only driver I could get to work, which means it breaks and I have to reinstall it every time I get a kernel update.

>well functioning touchpad that makes me hate all other touchpads
So much this. It's amazing how angry I get trying to use non-Apple touchpads. It's like no other manufacturer ever tried to use their touchpads for actual work.
>>
>>45351845
Eh what? Apple supports their hardware with software updates longer than just about anyone else. Although on iOS the updates can make old hardware unusable, but I've never had that issue with MacBooks (current one is 2011 model and is fully supported).
