macrumors 68000
Feb 9, 2009
Guys i'm disappointed. I have the 2017 MacBook i5 and also a late 2009 MacBook used 8+ hours a day for business.

The 2009 MacBook battery died on me October 2016. It lasted 6.5 years AND had 2500 CYCLES!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm truly gutted if these new super expensive MacBooks are not lasting. What the heck dowelled do if these develop faults at 4 years old??????? The repairs are not going to be economically worth it. Seriously, I paid £1500 for my i5 I really expect to get 5 or 6 years from it at that price!
