Hi Internet, So I have only been consistently getting 2:30 hours of battery life on my new retina macbook ... I am trying to identify if it's the way I am using the computer or if I have a defective machine. A few details: - I am running at 50% brightness - Typically I run Safari, Spotify, and occasionally open up some Adobe programs like Premiere, Illustrator, and After Effects (Which may seem like the red flag to the problem ... but I tried not running those programs once and still the same battery life. - I have "used up" about 9 cycles of the battery - I checked the activity monitor and nothing is really running more than 15% of the cpu at any given time. Any help would really be appreciated. I also run on the resolution for "more space" in the display settings. Could this affect my battery life? That's really my only guess at this point. Thanks!
