    How is the battery on your MBP 13" 2020?

    I bought the base model of i5 10th processor, and I have two issues, the MBP was so hot with simple tasks like web browsing, and the battery was draining in a few hours so fast. I think its not normal. How long does your battery last with mixed use of apps and programs?
