I finally upgraded from my mid-2009 MBP last week to a 13" MBP with TB. When I first got it, I really liked it a lot but now that the initial novelty of the TB has faded, I'm pretty unimpressed and I'm debating on returning it for a nonTB model, which apparently has much better battery life. I just haven't found a use for the TB yet, besides scrubbing through videos on YouTube. Ideally this would be nice to have on Netflix, HBOGo, etc. but they haven't implemented it yet. What I found most shocking was that the TB model has worse battery life than the previous models. From iFixIt, the 13" 2016 TB had 49 Whr, the 13" 2016 w/o had 54 Whr, and the 13" 2015 had 74.9 Whr. The difference is astounding. The thing keeping me with the TB model is the ports on both sides and the improved processor. I don't know how much it really affects performance, but I know it's better. Do you think the TouchBar will have more practical uses in the future? Or do you think Apple will end up axing it soon? Any help/opinions would be great.
