Opening and closing the device is very smooth. - touch id key ; biometric - excellent speed - battery life is outstanding The only thing I did not like is the number of ports given. Just 2 usb C ports and I had to buy usb C to hdmi, card reader, usb port extension separately.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as reliable as previous models I have used MacBooks for over a decade (upgrade every three years) and have LOVED using them. Four months ago, I got my latest model. Compared to previous Macs, it is dreadful. It is less user-friendly, it is less reliable and "so called" new features really are just inconvenient. It no longer is compatible with my external screen, keyboard & mouse and it not reliable even when working without them.
