2016 MacBook Pro Denied Recommendation From Consumer Reports Due to
Battery Life Inconsistencies
further proof that consumer reports are a bunch of idiots.
they claim to have obtained as much as *19* *hours* run time on the new
macbooks, which is *far* too high to be believable, but even assuming
that did happen, it would warrant a *recommendation* for such amazing
something is very clearly wrong with their testing (and not just for
macbooks either, they really have no clue what they're doing at all).
For instance, in a series of three consecutive tests, the 13-inch
model with the Touch Bar ran for 16 hours in the first trial, 12.75
hours in the second, and just 3.75 hours in the third. The 13-inch
model without the Touch Bar worked for 19.5 hours in one trial but
only 4.5 hours in the next. And the numbers for the 15-inch laptop
ranged from 18.5 down to 8 hours.
