So let me just say to begin, I have loved every Apple product I have owned, so I've always been very positive about the new Macbook and wanted one immediately. I sold my fully specced MBPR 15' to get ready for the new macbook release. My uses are extremely casual, basically light browsing, listening to music, and imessage. Upon getting my new computer 2 weeks ago I loved it, however, the battery life has been unbelievable awful and I keep getting the beachball when trying to load a simple website. I mean I have brightness set to 50% all apps closed except safari with 1/2 tabbs open and it says 4-5 hours of battery and thats what i get. The only way it ever says 8 hours of battery is if brightness is at 10%. And why does it keep freezing when I try to open a simple website, its not all sites, but i would say every other day there is a site that totally freezes the computer. Anyone have insights on to what I am doing wrong? I can't imagine this computer is this bad.
