New Apple MacBook Pro Has Shitty Battery Life, User Complaints
There has been close to no hype surrounding the so-called new Apple MacBook Pro. I say so called because if you think about it there is not much that has been added as compared to the previous model and instead much of the important things are taken away. It seems that the Apple MacBook Pro is not great when it comes to battery life either.
Users have been complaining that the Apple MacBook Pro does not last as long as they had expected. Here is what a user has to say:
“The battery on mine (MBP 15″, 2.9, 1 TB, 460) seemed poor when I first got it, but after a week or so it seemed to get better. I assume it’s because I was syncing Dropbox and installing all of my software. Now, I’m easily getting 8+ hours out of it when doing the “loungey” stuff like Messages, Safari, Mail, Calendar, and working on the odd spreadsheet in Excel”
Another user states as follows:
“I’ve had the 13′ w/ TB model for a little over a week and a half now. And I’m not liking the battery life at all so far. So initially using chrome w/ the rest of my apps I was getting about 4-5 hrs. So I switched to safari and noticed a slight bump, 5-6hrs. Which is not what was advertised. I used Safari, Mail, NetBeans/xcode and spotify. While in sleep mode, with all apps off, I lose about 6% every 8hrs which is also very bad…”
It seems that Chrome drains up a lot of battery as one user reported:
“Damn. I opened laptop when I just got home and had 75%. Has been less then 2 hours and got down to 5%. Chrome was open, and was editing photos in lightroom. Not a fan of the battery life”.
As more and more people are buying the Apple MacBook Pro, more and more issues are turning up. What do you think about the new Apple MacBook Pro?
