    Hi!

    I have a new 15" MBP RP460 on order and it'll be my first proper Mac. I'm planning to use macOS for the most part, but my work is tied to Windows so I'll be using bootcamp fairly regularly too. I was wondering if anyone has been using their new macs under bootcamp and what kind of battery life they're seeing? I'm not expecting 10 (or even 4-5 hours); i'm just curious and want to temper my expectations. :)

    Thanks,
    bakelord

    OK, I got my macbook today and have been trying out Windows in bootcamp. Seems i'll get about 3.5 hours from the first full charge, doing solid back to back installs of software and setting things up. It has been running nice and cool so far and very snappy in general. :)
