Last year I upgraded the RAM from 4GB to 16GB and many of the performance problems disappeared. Overall, I'm happy with this computer and it is serving me...

    MBP 13" 2017 - battery life

    I bought my new laptop last week. It's advertised as having up to 10 hours battery life. On the two occasions I've used it unconnected, however, the battery has been down to 80% after just 1 hour. This implies the battery isn't likely to last more than 5 hours. Not acceptable.

    Hello everyone, I'm new to Macs and macOS, so I apologize in advance if I seem ignorant. I got my MBP about a week ago. I checked the "Full Charge Capacity" and it says that it is 4463mAh. Is that low? Thanks!

    Refurb w/ Touch Bar or New MBP - Better Buy?

    Hey guys, Just wanted your opinions. 128gb isn't going to cut it for me. I could either get a new low end mbp (no touchbar) with the ssd upgrade or get a refurbished mbp w touch bar for the same price. Obviously, the touch bar is kind of cool but not really what I'm interested in, I would...
