I second this. Things I really like are:
- fast flyspell (I was having issues because of syntax highlighting in
vanilla emacs);
- several full screen modes (native OS X fullscreen, or just "take the
whole screen with no menu bar" version, which I prefer);
- smooth scrolling;
- double tap with three fingers to get dictionary entries (OK, I admit
it's a gimmick, but it's fun nonetheless).
