  New MacBookPro 15-inch Retina,  2013-11-08
By Gordon Apple

I am very pleased with most of this machines features. It is fast, light weight, and has an extremely readable screen. I was concerned, downsizing from my past two 17-inch machines to 15-inch, but I found that I can scale the screen to get similar size, in pixels, without losing readability. It also relaunches applications very fast, if I need to reboot for any reason.

On the downside, migration assistant was very balky, and took multiple attempts to get it to work at all. When it did, the remaining time estimates were all over the map and totally useless. With an ethernet cable, plus a Thunderbolt adapter, it took about 4 hrs. to transfer about 250 MB.

Another issue is WiFI. Somehow, this machine totally killed my WiFi network, using an Apple TimeMachine. In spite of showing full strong WiFi connectivity, none of my machines would then connect to the Internet. Rebooting the TimeMachine by pulling the plug, worked. Then, later, although my other machines would work, the new MacBookPro, showing it was connected, sporadically would refuse to connect until I again rebooted the TimeMachine. This is an issue Apple, Inc. needs to fix.
