I'm in luuurve with my new Macbook Pro 13 retina

Welcome to a stereotypical post where a longtime Windows user says they switched to a Mac and are happy with it. With the exception of some very occasional school computer lab time and giving tech support to my Mac using grandpa, I have used nothing but Windows computers since 3.1 in like 1993. I have had a Mac for approximately 1 hour and 13 minutes, and I'm very happy with it.

I had always not gotten Macs because they were a) expensive b) Mac people are occasionally insufferable, and c) I was genuinely fine with Windows 7. But I "needed" to get some new piece of tech because everything I owned except for my LG G2 is getting long in the tooth.

My local Apple store price matched B&H Photo (plus tax) on a Macbook Pro Retina 13" with 2.6 ghz i5, 8 gb ram, 512 gb ssd.

Things I like:

Dat screen (including proper scaling up of UI stuff for the higher resolution UNLIKE Windows garbage 8)
Dat touchpad
Dat battery
Dem OS X hot corners
Small and light
Keyboard's pretty solid—but not the best laptop keyboard I've used

So far downsides are: 1) it's easy to knock the power cord out but I guess this is a "safety" feature 2) I keep getting control, option, command and fn keys mixed up 3) my cat is pissed off at me for not paying enough attention to him since getting home from the Apple store and 4) I want right-click like Windows instead of ctrl-click EDIT: thanks to several comments now I know I can just 2-finger click.
