    In theory, it should.

    It also has another fan to run (dual fans on the 28W model).

    The battery is ever so slightly larger on the base non-touchbar, too.

    I doubt it would be "much worse" but the base should have measurably better battery life.

    Good point about the fan. Do you remember where you saw that the battery was bigger on the base model? I was hoping it would be the opposite case :)

    Directly from Apple.com

    54.5 W-hr in the base, 49.2 W-hr in the touchbar.

    It's a 10% increase in battery size, plus uses less power.
