I did it... First, I returned my tb model for a nTB because I didn't like the touchbar. But the battery life! I keep getting blindsided with low battery notifications after like 2.5-3 hours. I'm not a particularly heavy computer user either. I mostly use it for web browsing, and sometimes for web development. I simply can't use this machine for the basic things I need it for. So yesterday I did the unthinkable and ordered a Dell Chromebook 11 for $219. I haven't used Linux since I was in college. I'm actually pretty excited. Hopefully Apple will release a better computer next year and I'll come back. For now though, Farewell Apple!
