Hey all. I just upgraded from Macbook Air 11inch 1.4GHZ 128gb SSD 4gb ram to 2016 Macbook Pro 13inch no touchbar 256GB SSD 2GHZ processor. I was worried about the lack of ports, but turns out, its not a problem at all. I got a 10 dollar converter for usb and it worked for everything. The speakers are great, the ergonomics are amazing. Anyway, heres my question : While looking at used laptops, I noticed that the Battery Cycles are a big deal and it made me worry about using my battery. How many Battery Cycles will this computer get? Should I try to keep it charged at all times? Whenever the battery goes out, will I be able to change it out? Also, what is a good shell that you would recommend? I take this laptop to work everyday and I am kind of nervous because I dont want anything to spill on it, or for it to get scratched. You know the feeling of a new laptop. It's a little stressful, almost like buying a new car. I dont want a scratch on it. Are there any good package deals out there where I can get a keyboard cover, shell, case, and whatnot? Also, is the SSD upgradable? I read that it is not, but then I saw somewhere that it may be, it's just a little harder to remove the SSD because of the location. Any info on that? 256GB should be fine though. I mostly just use this computer for music production. Sorry for the long story, thanks everyone.
