    I just picked up one of these MBP's last week, and I got windows 10 working via Boot Camp. Are there any long term issues from using Windows on a Macbook on the battery or GPU, CPU, anything like that?

    Nope, its just an operating system. Windows doesn't have the same level of power saving built into OS X, so you may see less battery performance but overall there's no long term effects.

    Nope, if you want to get rid of Windows, just use the boot camp assistant and remove the Windows partition. Everything will go back to normal.

    I've found that Windows 10 is actually pretty close to OSX for battery life. At least on my 2015 13" rMBP.

    I had windows 7 and that wasn't as good battery wise. Since then I've largely moved onto a SP3 for my mobile needs and thus there was no need to keep windows on my MBP.

    Oh I definitely agree with you there. Windows 7 and 8 don't hold a candle to OSX when it comes to battery life.

    Ah right now, i'm running Windows 10. This is my first time using OS x, so it's taking some time getting used to haha.
