I’ve been using a second generation MacBook for a little over a year now, and in many ways I love it. The performance is good enough most of the time, and the portability has helped me get a lot more done because of how easy it is to carry the MacBook and use it in a variety of places.
All that said, I had enough performance and stability issues that I was eager to upgrade when the third generation model was announced at WWDC. While I have no issues upgrading my iPhone every year, it’s been very unusual for me to want to upgrade a Mac that often. I decided to try the MacBook Escape1 alongside the latest MacBook because I want to be sure I’ll still be happy with my Mac this time next year.
