    "I know that's a bold claim, and Apple's engineers have done seemingly impossible things before. But I'm not talking about science -- I'm talking about the law. It's illegal to carry a laptop on an airplane with a battery capacity greater than 100 watt-hours -- and last year's 15-inch MacBook Pro already had a 99.5 watt-hour power pack."

    Therefore 10 hours is pretty good for a quad core CPU

    According to Apple's webpage, the new 15" MacBook Pro packs a 76.0-watt-hour lithium-polymer battery. They could use bigger battery if they wanted.

    Exactly. They did the same thing with the Iphone 6 and 6s. Decrease battery size in order to increase thinness. It's nonsense. Most MBP users are use to having industry-leading battery life for the performance. Apple thought they would get rid of this feature to increase thinness. The monkeys are running the circus now.

    Look at the stats - they must have gone crazy trying to meet that exactly 3lb and 4lb marks... totally ridiculous and anal.

    This was my single biggest disappointment. I have a 2013 MBA i5 that gets 12+ hours of battery life. I was hoping to replace it with a MBP that at least matches it. Looks like I'll have to give up 2 hours.
