Verdict: Hands down the best laptop I have ever owned. I would recommend to everyone. After only 30 days the mac keyboard shortcuts are basically muscle memory. Its very quick and responsive. I have the use of linux like utilities and shell, and the only time this thing gets at all warm is when I am watching videos. I have not run any applications requiring the discrete video. Battery life is also excellent.
basically I can do things like type j doc and it cds to Documents I can also type jo doc and it opens documents in finder. Very useful.
The osx plugin is nice as well. For example, If I have a finder window open and some files selected from the command line I can do cp $(pfs) . and it will copy all the selected files into current directory. There are tons of other nifty things as well.
