    I come from a 2012 MBA 11” i7 and I love the form factor and portability.

    I’m about to purchase the new 2017 MBP13 with TouchBar. It would be with i7/16GB/515GB. The Macbook 12” it’s discarded because does not have Thunderbolt 3 mainly.

    I do eventually some home video (FCP) and image editing (Photohsop) that’s why the i7/16GB. On those cases it’s connected on desktop screen and AC.

    The only stopper i have is the battery life. If the battery life of this combination is no 8-10h on basic daily usage (Web browsing 30 tabs, Youtube video playing, VLC 720p videos), I might be thinking of lose the touchbar in order to get more battery juice, going with the nTB version.

    Any help deciding?
