    I've been using the first version of MacBook as my primary computer for awhile now. I can say this is the best Macbook I've owned so far. Sketch, Safari, Chrome, Dropbox, Tweetbot and some other apps are always open and not seeing any performance issues.

      Me too, have been using it for the last year. Terminal running Middleman with SASS and ERB compilers, Chrome, Firefox, Swinsian, Dropbox, MEGA, Sublime Text, Slack with 4 channels, Boxy, Time Machine, Screenhero, Tripmode, F.lux and OpenVPN.

      No performance issues. Sometimes it gets a bit slow, during more processor intensive tasks, but still. Fuck yeah

      PD. Also have tested Internet Explorer with Parallels. Does it's job sooo well. Slows the machine down, but not unusable. Fuck yeah!

      Did you order an upgraded one? I've found that some things can cause it to slow down significantly. Also, mabye I'm getting older but I'm finding the 12" screen to be too small.

      And not to nitpick TOO much but the laptop is so small and light that it bounces too much when typing in my lap.

      Other than that, I love it for traveling, meetings and home use.

        Yes, I have the upgraded (max.) one.

          That must make all the difference. I really love the little guy there are some things holding it back from being my primary machine. The minute they release a 13" or 15" version, I'll be upgrading :)
