The new MacBook Pro gets ‘not recommended’ score from Consumer Reports
December 26, 2016

The first Apple product not getting the recommendation.

Apple’s new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar may have introduced new innovations, but recent problems with the new hardware’s battery life prompted Consumer Reports to give it a ‘not recommended’ rating.

As reported by Consumer Reports, battery life was the main reason why it didn’t get the recommendation. If you weren’t aware, every MacBook Pro that was released in the past years were all given high praises, which means this stops the winning streak that Apple had with its own notebook brand.

It was mentioned that the battery life results were inconsistent with every test. Consumer Reports has done a test on the three main MacBook Pro models that were released last month and offered different battery life results with ever round of testing that was done. It was revealed that battery ranges from about 3 and a half hours to 19 hours. Apple said that the new MacBook Pro models have an average battery life of 10 hours.

Apple only announced that it is now talking to Consumer Reports as to how the testing was done. With the numerous complaints being published online by early adopters of the new notebook, it is time that Apple provides a clear explanation to the recent MacBook Pro problems.
