The Mac hate here is quite the epic may may.
Where else can I get all this for $2499?

I rest my case.

My 2000$ desktop is substantially better than everything in that syst...oh wait this is b8 isn't it? Almost got me.
why would anybody who actually knows how to use a keyboard need this?
It sounds like something that only people who are new to computers would need, which are also the same people who would think macs are good.
Oh. I get it.
How does it matter? The light from the screen splashes onto the keyboard anyway.
I'm sorry, but most desktops barely need 16 gigs of ram unless you have 16 firefox tabs open at a time while playing a 1080P BDrip and an incredibly intensive game in the background at the same time. You're overpaying there, as you are for the whole system.
Depends, really. I sometimes glance on it and work often with foreign keyboard layouts where I do need to check out where I can find certain shit.
Depends on your machine. I missed having a backlit keyboard on my old Sager.

glancing at your keyboard is an awful habit. Stop that. It does nothing but slow you down.
And the backlit keyboard doesnt change the display on the keys for your primary computer, so that point is moot.
i ended up buying a 13 inch rMBP because i spent so long trying to find something which had everything i was looking for before i went off to uni (high resolution screen, decent processor, etc.) but I just couldn't for a similar price (education pricing)
ended up hating it at first when i was trying to set everything up but now I've used it for a few months it's great, especially for CS
