Okay, just finished setting up my TB 13". Charged to full, no Spotlight indexing or anything. Battery is showing 9:41 remaining:
I could probably live with this if it actually gets 9:41. But it is declining rapidly. It started at 9:51 right after I unplugged it, then dropped to 9:41 in about 15 seconds, and now just after I took this screenshot it's already down to 9:21. That's not encouraging. All I'm doing right now is posting this message. Safari open and a few other apps, nothing intensive.
[doublepost=1479264808][/doublepost]Okay, this is bad news. My last post was about 52 minutes ago. I was eating dinner for about 45 of those 52 minutes, and the MBP was just sitting idle during that time. Check out what the battery indicator shows now:
I'm afraid the Verge review was right. In 52 minutes of no use at all, my battery went from 9:21 remaining to 6:57 remaining. That's ridiculous—I'm returning this for sure.
I can only hope the 15" model fares better, because I've already gotten pretty attached to TouchID. Not sure about TB itself yet, but TouchID alone makes it worthwhile for me (especially with 1Password).
