Not A Pro Battery

leave a comment »

If you’re still looking for those holiday stocking stuffers or gifts under the tree, you might want to grab a copy of Consumer Reports before you invest in a new Apple MacBook Pro.

The company just conducted their most recent evaluations, and while the new Pros did very well in measures of display quality and performance, “the models varied dramatically from one trial to another.”

As a result, CR went on to explain, “these laptops are the first MacBooks not to receive recommended ratings from Consumer Reports.”

CR acknowledges that complaints about MacBook Pro batteries have been raised since the laptops first went on sale in November, and Apple’s guidances was that these computers “should operate for up to 10 hours between charges.” Only users in Apple support forums reported they were only able to use their laptops for three to four hours before the battery ran down.

You can see CR’s full read out here.
