I agree. I didn't get a maxed out version but mine still runs so fast and the batteries are still like new in my opinion. I feel no need to buy a new Mac yet, I don't even think the Mac seems any slower than it did the day I bought it, even with all of the new OS versions. I use Final Cut Pro to edit multiple 1080p/60 streams and it handles everything. The photo of the Mac with the back off looks like a work of art lol. I hate to sound like a hardcore Apple fanboy but its really good-looking inside and out. This was my first Mac and I can't imagine going back to Windows now.
