Doing my normal sunday walk around the stores trying to spend money and had a look in JBhifi, saw one of these, very nice looking machine, small/light a just nice to pick up.
Would never buy one but can understand why people would buy one from the looks of them.

tdgeek: Partly on topic, sorta, tanget-wise. I've read the odd review, and the appeared to be fine. Lower powered, don't expect quad i7, but perhaps real world is not as good.

Anyone else have one? 

I purchased a 1.3 GHz Macbook 12 inch a month ago and have been presently surprised by how snappy this is. It is way too expensive for what it is, but I value weight and battery life above all else, so for me it fits the bill. I run Lightroom, Microsoft Office, Safari, Mail, and a VMWare Horizon Client, all with absolutely no problem. We have a 2014 Macbook Pro in the house as well, and while it is clearly not in that league, for most of what i do, there is minimal difference. I wouldn't try much video editing on it though!
