    For those who have or currently own a 2012 15inch Retina Macbook, did you ever get the original stated 7 hours of battery life?

    EDIT: When I got my 2012 Macbook Pro I was able to get just over 6 hours but never the 7hrs the Apple claimed. Even with the brightness all the way down to 3 bars. Now the best I can get with 85% battery health, i get 4.0-5hrs.

    Mountain Lion, never more than 6 hours; On Mavericks I was able to eek out 7.1 hours, depending on what I was doing, e.g., browsing, email, and occasional HTML5 video. I haven't really checked since Yosemite.

    I get about 6.5 hours for browsing but I get 4 hours or less for doing handbrake.
