    15" Retina 2.6Ghz/16GB/1TB

    Kernel Task
    Windows Server

    Both have high usage. Battery life with 4 bars of brightness (so rather low) and WIFI is very poor.

    Anyone else? Any fixes?

    Use gfxcardstatus and force the GPU into Intel only.

    And if you're using Chrome, get that piece of crap off your Mac. Chrome is the worst browser for OS X and is a massive resource hog.
