    The 15" got 15+ hours with iGPU, and 7.5 hours with dGPU.

    For a company that Stripped these computers down to bare bones in the name of Battery Life, the Touchbar just seems so ODD, just an out of place LAME DUCK.

    Is that test they did a reliable indicator of real-world performance? 15 hour seems really, really high given what Apple estimated.

    The keyboard isn't terrible, it's just not as fantasic as the one on previous MBPs. It IS a downgrade but I didn't find it unusable like the original butterfly keyboard. I have so many other quandaries with the new MBP the keyboard is the least of it, but I do understand those who still are not satisfied with the new version.
